Sodium Chlorate Production Cost Analysis 2021
Sodium chlorate is an inorganic compound. It is a white crystalline powder in appearance that is readily miscible in water. It is hygroscopic in nature. Sodium chlorate comes in the forms of dust, spray, and granules, It starts to decompose above 300 °C to release oxygen and leave sodium chloride. It is manufactured extensively, primarily for applications in bleaching pulp to make high brightness paper.
The primary industrial application of sodium chlorate is the production of chlorine dioxide or ClO2. The most significant application of ClO2, which accounts for approximately 95% of the use of chlorate, is in the bleaching of pulp. All perchlorate compounds are created commercially by the oxidation of solutions of sodium chlorate by electrolysis. It is an active ingredient in a variety of industrial herbicides. Some trade names for products with sodium chlorate include Atlacide, Defol, De-Fol-Ate, Drop-Leaf, Fall, Harvest-Aid, Kusatol, Leaves, and Tumble Leaf. The compound can be utilised in combination with other herbicides like atrazine, 2,4-D, bromacil, diuron, and sodium metaborate.
