On 22 – 23 January 2020, DuPont Clean Technologies (DuPont) welcomed 60 key members of the sulfuric acid industry on the Indian subcontinent to a specialist Sulphuric Acid Symposium in Hyderabad. The event shared the latest intelligence on new technologies, operations and equipment that enable sulfuric plant operators to raise productivity and reduce operating costs. Keynote speeches addressed topics that are of common concern and interest to the industry ranging from emissions reduction to lifecycle costs, safety and troubleshooting.
“This event introduced us to a wide range of possible solutions for optimising our plant performance, with a focus on reducing emissions to achieve sustainable operations,” said Prasad Suryarao, Vice President – Mundra Copper Ltd. “It was an excellent opportunity to discuss our challenges and goals with technical experts to discover possible solutions under one roof. The event also helped us to network and to learn about operating and maintenance issues faced as well as best practices followed by industry peers."
The two-day symposium gave delegates insight into emissions reduction technologies including an innovative new catalyst, discussed materials, processes, systems and services that are designed to improve sulfuric acid plant productivity, examined the behaviour of alloys in acid towers and converters, shared tips on troubleshooting and also presented personal protective equipment against chemical influences. In eight keynote sessions, technical specialists shared details on the latest technologies and equipment and answered delegate questions in a closing roundtable discussion.
Thierry Marin, Managing Director, DuPont Clean Technologies, EMEA, explained: “DuPont Clean Technologies regularly holds similar events around the world to allow members of the sulfuric acid industry to stay up to date with the latest technology developments and best sulfuric acid operational practices. These workshops give them the opportunity to discuss technical questions that are based on their own experiences with MECS® subject matter experts and to make us aware of their particular objectives and requirements relating to emissions reduction and production optimisation.”
