Epichlorohydrin
Epichlorohydrin
ECH
Chloromethyloxirane
Epichlorohydrin (a.k.a. ECH, Chloromethyloxirane) is an epoxide and an organochlorine compound. It is not a halohydrin, as its name could suggest. In its pure form, epichlorohydrin is a clear, colorless liquid. The versatility conferred by the presence of both an epoxide ring and a chlorine atom explains epichlorohydrin's wide use as a chemical intermediate, allowing it to react with many types of compounds.
The uses and applications of Epichlorohydrin may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Epichlorohydrin are grade A (98.0 % minimum purity, with maximum water content of 0.1%) and technical grade (99.9% minimum purity, with maximum water content of 0.05%).

Updated Reports Examining Epichlorohydrin Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Epichlorohydrin manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Epichlorohydrin process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Epichlorohydrin production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Epichlorohydrin Production from Allyl Chloride

This report presents a economic analysis of Epichlorohydrin production from allyl chloride and chlorine in the United States using a typical hypochlorination process. Initially, allyl chloride is reacted with hypochlorous acid, formed by chlorine dispersion in water. The glycerol dichlorohydrins generated are then treated with calcium hydroxide to promote epoxidation, yielding ECH.

The cost analyses presented in the report ECH E11A target a 75 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Epichlorohydrin from Propylene (Allyl Chloride Intermediate)

This feasibility study provides an economic analysis of Epichlorohydrin (ECH) production from propylene and chlorine in the United States. Initially, propylene is chlorinated, generating allyl chloride, which is reacted with hypochlorous acid, formed by chlorine dispersion in water. Finally, the glycerol dichlorohydrins generated are hydrolyzed with calcium hydroxide, yielding ECH.

Details: 80 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report ECH E21A target a 80 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Epichlorohydrin from Propylene (Allyl Alcohol Intermediate)

This study presents a techno-economic analysis of Epichlorohydrin production from propylene and chlorine in the United States. In this process, propylene is subjected to an acetoxylation reaction, followed by hydrolysis, generating allyl alcohol, which is then chlorinated, yielding glycerol dichlorohydrins. Finally, the glycerol dichlorohydrins generated are reacted with calcium hydroxide, yielding Epichlorohydrin.

Details: 110 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report ECH E22A target a 110 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Epichlorohydrin Production from Glycerol and Hydrogen Chloride

This study provides an economic analysis of Epichlorohydrin production from glycerol in the United States. Initially, glycerol is reacted with hydrogen chloride in a hydrochlorination reaction, generating dichlorohydrins (DCH). Then, the DCH is hydrolyzed by caustic soda, yielding epichlorohydrin (ECH).

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report ECH E31A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Epichlorohydrin Production from Acrolein

This report provides a techno-economic study of an early stage process for Epichlorohydrin production from acrolein in the United States. The process examined is a non-commercial route based on Dow Chemical patents.

Details: 75 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report ECH E41A target a 75 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Epichlorohydrin Production from Glycerol and Sodium Chloride

This report presents the economics of Epichlorohydrin (ECH) production from glycerol and sodium chloride in the United States. Initially, brine is decomposed electrolytically in a membrane cell, producing chlorine, caustic soda and hydrogen. The hydrogen and chlorine react forming hydrogen chloride (HCl). Finally, glycerol is reacted with HCl, generating dichlorohydrins (DCH), which are hydrolyzed to ECH by the caustic soda.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   106 pages   From $1,499 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report ECH E51A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.
