Phosgene (a.k.a. COCl2) is a colorless, highly toxic gas, mainly applied in the production of a great variety of chemicals, specially isocyanates. It is soluble in aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and organic acids and esters. It is removed easily from solvents by heating or sparging with air or nitrogen, but because of its toxicity, great care must be taken to prevent its presence in the atmosphere. Phosgene is manufactured by reaction of carbon monoxide with chlorine over activated carbon
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Phosgene production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
