09 January, Montreal QC — Increased paper production at PAR-served Nine Dragon Paper mills at Rumford and Old Town, Maine, calls for increased sulfuric acid shipments, as well as the MNR-served Twin Rivers mill in Madawaska, Maine.
Sulphuric acid is made from sulphur dioxide (SO 2 ), a by-product of metal smelting. CN will transport the acid to customers for use in automotive, steel, power generation, battery manufacturing and oil sector producers, in addition to paper producers.
Cleveland OH-based NorFalco is the largest distributor of sulfuric acid in North America. NorFalco distributes sulfuric acid derived from smelting facilities in Sudbury ON; and Rouyn-Noranda and Valleyfield QC, supporting regional metal-mining operations. NorFalco and CN have an enduring strategic partnership that was warmly acknowledged in the agreement announcement by CN President and CEO JJ Ruest and NorFalco CEO Kunal Sinha.
