The Universal Chemical

Sulfuric acid is often referred to as the “universal chemical” and “the chemical that makes chemicals” due to the numerous applications for sulfuric acid as a raw material or processing agent.

This basic building block chemical is used in the production of countless daily and household items. From beer and sweeteners, to paper and pharmaceuticals, our quality product helps create items you use every single day.

Sulfuric acid is produced at our facilities through the combustion of elemental sulfur (S) to form sulfur dioxide (SO2). The SO2 is transformed into sulfur trioxide (SO3) through a catalytic oxidation. The SO3 then reacts with water by being absorbed in concentrated sulfuric acid (H2SO4).
