    TECHNOLOGY FOR THE PRODUCTION OF EPICHLOROHYDRIN ECO-FRIENDLY

    Epichlorohydrin is a C3 organic epoxy compound, which combines the reactivity of an epoxy group (an oxygen bridge) with the additional reactivity of a chloro-group.

    Epichlorohydrin undergoes a great variety of chemical reactions with many types of compounds. It is the major raw material for epoxy resins, which account for up to 75% of total output.

    Thanks to its inherent versatility, it is used in a wide variety of other applications, including ion exchange resins, textiles, paper sizing, special inks and dyes, surface active agents, elastomers, plasticizers, agricultural products, liners, pharmaceuticals and many other applications.

    CONSER, besides having secured in the past decades a leading position as licensor of the conventional epichlorohydrin process from propylene and chlorine, has recently developed and patented a new technology route, called ECH-EF (epichlorohydrin eco-friendly), to produce epichlorohydrin using glycerin and hydrogen chloride as raw materials.

    The new ECH-EF technology shows that, thanks to the lower cost of the raw materials, to the lower plant investment cost, to the substantial reduction of energy consumption and of the aqueous and chlorinated by-products, it is the most effective route to produce epichlorohydrin.
