Phosphoric Acid is a key raw material in the manufacture of HEDP (Etidronic acid). Its market in the North American region remained consolidated in the fourth quarter of 2021, with producer offers fluctuating during the quarter. The main cause for this market shift was linked to the low reliance on Chinese suppliers for fertiliser exports as well as enough domestic production. The North American demand outlook has been bolstered by a paradigm change in the phosphoric acid market trend from fertilisers to electric vehicles. As a result, the FOB USA quarterly average was set at 1650 USD/MT at the end of the quarter.

HEDP or Etidronic acid is a 1,1-bis (phosphonic acid), which is an (ethane-1,1-diyl) bis(phosphonic acid) with a hydroxy substituent at the 1-position. It inhibits the formation, growth, as well as the dissolution of hydroxyapatite crystals by chemisorption to calcium phosphate surfaces. This bisphosphonate is used in medication. It plays a role as a bone density conservation agent, a chelator and an antineoplastic agent.
Chemical Formula of HEDP or Etidronic Acid:
In order to produce HEDP or Etidronic Acid, a reaction takes place between phosphorus trichloride and acetic acid in water that helps it in converting into phosphorus acid. After the conversion, it further reacts with the acetic anhydride in a vessel to finally produce HEDP.
