NorFalco, one of North America’s largest merchant marketers of sulfuric acid, is responsible for the marketing and distribution of about 2 million tons of sulfuric acid per year. Through parent company Glencore, NorFalco has exclusive access to sulfuric acid production from four major North American production facilities and to an “unrivaled global sulfuric acid supply and trading network,” the company said. “NorFalco’s extensive multi-modal distribution network, supplied by the modern metallurgical facilities Glencore, serves customers from a wide variety of industries.”
