Ethylene dichloride (EDC)
is also known as Dichloroethane or 1,2-dichloroethane. Ethylene dichloride clear, colorless liquid with a pleasant chloroform-like odor and sweet taste. Ethylene dichloride is highly flammable, toxic and carcinogenic chemical generally used to produce vinyl chloride monomer, the major precursor of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). One of the major properties making ethylene dichloride popular is recyclability which makes it possible to easily recycle and reuse in the same facility for further use. Globally growing demand for PVC products is expected to drive the demand for EDC in the near future.
This report identifies the ethylene dichloride market
