It is estimated that about 800,000 tonnes of sulphuric acid is produce to meet the market’s demand. This chemical is widely used in the latex industry to coagulate rubber, electronic industry as an etching agent, the palm oil industry as a neutralizing agent, and as a base chemical for many chemical industries. Sulphuric acid is also heavily in used for the manufacturing of fertilizers and in the automotive industry. Blooming agriculture industry in the country and the increasing production of automotive has contributed huge needs for sulphuric acid. The worldwide production of the sulphuric acid stands around 200 million tonnes per annum.
The inventor of a new method of extracting the bromine from the underground, Henry Dow, founded the company in Midland, Michigan. In less than 20 years it had become a leading manufacturer of magnesium metal, chlorine and agricultural chemicals. Dow is the third largest chemical company based on market cap. The industry-leading and integrated portfolio of advanced materials, plastics, chemicals, and agrosciences businesses is what most characterizes Dow. Thanks to this, it is able to deliver a vast range of technology-based products and solutions in fast growing sectors such as electronics, packaging,
INTRODUCTION Acetylene discovered by Edmund chemist in 1836 Who known it as a "new combination of hydrogen"..In 1860 it was made by a new technique by passing over red hot tube, vapours of organic compounds (methanol, ethanol, etc.) by Marcellin Berthelot . He also found that ethyne can be produced or formed by sparking electricity through mixed cyanogens and hydrogen gases . 1.1 USES: Acetylene (C2H2 ) is extremely reactive , having commercial importanc organic compound. it's employed in Fusion welding (process of joining metallic parts).Acetylene is employed as a primarily staple for the synthesis of no of organic chemicals .
This successful oil exploration was known to be the first commercially significant oil discovery in the Middle East. In present time, BP’s international headquarters is in London but has several other regional headquarters across the globe. It has a staff count of approximately 83,900
This process unit is widely used in industries to convert raw materials into products. There are a lot of factors that affect the design of a chemical reactor depending on the type of chemical reaction that will be taking place such as; the mode of operation this could either be batch or continuous, the type of phases involved homogenous or heterogeneous, and the reactor geometry required. There are many types of reactors and this report will focus on the selection and detailed design of an appropriate chemical reactor suitable for the steam reforming process prior to the direct dimethyl ether

Sulphuric acid One of the most important chemicals used in the industrial revolution was sulphuric acid (H2SO4), as it had many different uses in textile and metallurgical industries. Due to its importance, it was in high demand and the amount which could be produced was constantly trying to be improved.It was during this period that a scientist by the name of John Roebuck discovered that this chemical could be produced at a much larger scale than once thought. He did this by making small changes to the production method. Up until now the chemical had been produced in glass bottles by reacting sulfur with potassium nitrate, or saltpeter as it was more commonly known, with steam. The potassium nitrate acted as an oxidizing agent, oxidizing
Starting with textiles in the late seventies, Reliance pursued a strategy of backward vertical integration – in polyster, fibre intermediates, plastcs, petrochemical,s petroleum refining and oil and gas exploration and production – to be fully integrated along the materials and energy value chain. The Group’s activities span exploration and production of oil and gas, petroleum refining and marketing,petrochemicals (polyster, fibre intermediates,plastics and chemicals), textiles, retail, infotel and special economic zones. Reliance enjoys global leadership in its business, being the largest polyester yarn and fibre produces in the world and amond the top five the ten produces in the world in major petrochemical products. Major Group Companies are Reliance Industries Limited, including its subsidiaries and Reliance Industrieal Infrastructure
1. Introduction: Gauze reactors are the emerging reactors to stabilize the utilisation of catalytic material and increase the rate of reaction. The word Gauze is originated from a French word “gaze”, which means a thin fabricated wired structure. In ancient days gauzes were specifically used in weaving silk clothes. Its trend has been rapidly increased in the present world where they are used for different aspects such as pharmaceutical industries, oxidation purposes, including gauze sponges for medical purposes (medical dressing).
