Ethylene Dichloride Production Cost Analysis 2021

Ethylene dichloride or EDC is a chlorinated hydrocarbon. It is a colourless liquid with a chloroform-like odour. The most extensive use of EDC that can be seen or observed is in the manufacturing of vinyl chloride that is used to make polyvinyl chloride, i.e., PVC pipes, furniture or automobile upholstery, wall coverings, housewares, and automobile parts. EDC is also utilized usually as an intermediate for other organic chemical compounds and as a solvent. It forms azeotropes with several other solvents, such as water. As an excellent polar aprotic solvent, EDC could be used as a degreaser as well as a paint remover.

As a useful 'building block' reagent, it is used as an intermediate in the manufacturing of numerous organic compounds such as ethylenediamine. In the labs, it is utilised as a source of chlorine, with the elimination of ethene and chloride. EDC is also a precursor to 1,1,1-trichloroethane, which is used in dry cleaning. Historically, EDC was used as an anti-knock additive in leaded fuels to scavenge lead from cylinders and valves to prevent build-up.
