Epichlorohydrin (ECH) is a clear colorless liquid with an irritating chloroform-like odor. It is a highly reactive organochlorine compound and is used in the production of glycerol, plastics, epoxy glues and resins, and elastomers. In contact with water, epichlorohydrin hydrolyzes to 3-MCPD, a carcinogen found in food. Epichlorohydrin is readily biodegradable and is not expected to persist in the environment. Epichlorohydrin has a low potential to bioaccumulate, and is not expected to adsorb to soil or sediment. In water, epichlorohydrin will be rapidly broken down by both biological and non-biological mechanisms. In air, epichlorohydrin will rapidly dissipate and break down. In the case of soil exposure, epichlorohydrin will mostly remain in groundwater rather than soil particulates, and will be rapidly degraded.
Epichlorohydrin application scenario is very broad, and its also an important organic raw materials for epoxy resin, the current market of Epichlorohydrin demand will still increase. As an important intermediate in Chemical industry fields, Epichlorohydrin has attracted more and more attention right now.
Global Epichlorohydrin production capacity increased rapidly in recent years, Global production capacity of Epichlorohydrin is 2700 kilo tons in 2015, capacity up 500 kilo tons/a than 2011.
World of Epichlorohydrin production presents four characteristics: one is less production countries and regions, and regional development imbalance, China, the United States, Germany, Japan and China's Taiwan region total production capacity of more than 85% of the world's total production capacity. The second is capacity more concentrated, and the world more than 50% of capacity is concentrated in Dow (Dow) chemistry, Shandong Haili, Solvay (Solvay), Formosa Plastics and other minority several companies. Third is the process is relatively simple, most device adopts propylene high temperature chlorination process, a handful of companies using glycerol method, production capacity of less than 5%. Four is the Asian production capacity increased rapidly in recent years, since 2008 China has surpassed the United States to become the world's largest producer of propylene oxide.
