Chemours can work with sulfuric acid producers or consumers to improve the operations of their facilities.
We run some of the best sulfuric acid plants in the world, so we can work with you to help provide a richer understanding of your facilities, giving you the opportunity to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
Chemours can provide both off-site and on-site training for your plant personnel. Training includes plant operations, materials and equipment selection, and safe storage and handling. We can customize the training to fit your plant’s needs.
As DuPont and now as Chemours, we have operated sulfuric acid plants since 1865, and in the process we’ve gained a lot of knowledge about proper plant maintenance. We operate some of the lowest-cost plants in the world and would be happy to evaluate your present maintenance program, or design a new one.
Chemours fully endorses the ACC’s Responsible Care® Management System requirements. We encourage customers to thoroughly review their safety management practices in the handling of sulfur trioxide and oleums. In support of product stewardship, we will assist customers in the design of unloading and handling facilities, as well as make recommendations for first aid, medical treatment, personnel protective equipment (PPE), spill mitigation, and materials of construction selection. For first-time sulfur trioxide/oleum users, Chemours should be contacted before site selection has been made and/or facilities have been designed or built. To ensure that Chemours sulfur trioxide/oleum is handled in a safe manner, our personnel may visit sites before making the first shipment.
