Ethanoic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2020

Ethanoic acid, which is also known as acetic acid, is a colourless liquid and an organic compound. It has a distinctive sour taste, along with its pungent smell. In addition to household vinegar, it is primarily manufactured as a precursor to polyvinyl acetate as well as to cellulose acetate. It is grouped as a weak acid because it only partially dissociates in solution. 

Ethanoic acid is the second simplest carboxylic acid after formic acid. It is composed of a methyl group attached to a carboxyl group. It is a crucial chemical reagent and a commerical chemical that is mainly utilised in the creation of cellulose acetate for areas like the photographic film, wood glue, and synthetic fibres and fabrics. In households, diluted ethanoic acid is often utilised in descaling agents. The international demand for acetic acid is about 6.5 million metric tons per year (Mt/a), of which about 1.5 Mt/a is met by recycling; the remainder is manufactured from methanol.
