In Turkey, pyrite, copper melting gases and sulfur are used like a raw material for the sulfuric acid production. Bandirma Etibank sulfuric acid production factory has 95000 ton/year technical and 25000 ton/year pure, annual sulfuric acid production capacity. In this factory, sulfuric acid is produced by contact method with using flotation pyrite.
