Epichlorohydrin Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

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. It is widely used in the production epoxy resins. Produced with purity greater than 98%, Epichlorohydrin is a clear, colorless liquid.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Epichlorohydrin 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 (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Epichlorohydrin production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Epichlorohydrin Production from Propylene - Cost Analysis | ECH E21A

This feasibility study provides an economic analysis of Epichlorohydrin (ECH) production from propylene and chlorine in the USA. 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.

Epichlorohydrin Production from Glycerol - Cost Analysis | ECH E31A

This study provides an economic analysis of Epichlorohydrin production from glycerol in the USA. 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).
