Production of Sulphuric Acid has come to be accepted throughout the world as a reliable barometer of industrial activity. It is used in the process industries from very dilute concentrations for Ph control of saline solutions to strong fuming acids used in the dye, bleaching, explosives, and pharmaceutical industries.
Sulphuric acid is not a one-grade product. It is produced and supplied in grades of exacting purity for the storage battery, rayon, dye, tannery, water purification and in grades of less exacting specifications for use in the steel, heavy chemical and super phosphate & zinc sulphate industries. Sulphuric acid is used to produce ferrous sulphate, alum etc which are consumable in ETP plants. Lead acid batteries are used to run automobiles, ships, aroplanes, UPS, IPS in addition to store DC Current where a large amount of sulphuric acid is consumed. Additionally, the world is in crisis of power generation. Solar source is pointed out to cover the crisis. In remote area, solar source is now come to popular. A large amount of Lead Acid Batteries made of sulphuric acid are used in preserving such solar energy. Indeed it is so practical to say that the future of world will be on solar power. Bangladesh is also towards this for its rural/remote areas.
In addition to the above, the other areas of usage are:
- The largest use of sulphuric acid is in the production of phosphate fertilisers. It is also used as an acidic dehydrating agent in petrochemical processes and oil refining, and to make hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids, aluminium and copper sulphate and chromium compounds;
- Other uses of sulphuric acid include the manufacture of plasticisers, dyestuffs, explosives, silicate for toothpaste, adhesives, rubbers, edible oils, lubricants, the production of food acids such as citric or lactic acid and to directly control pH during the processing of some foods and beverages. A minor use in agriculture is its application to growing potato plants to desiccate the shoots effectively stopping any further growth.
