Featured Report: Vinyl Chloride Production from Ethylene and EDC

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Vinyl Chloride production from ethylene and ethylene dichloride (EDC). The process examined combines: (1) EDC production from ethylene via oxychlorination, and (2) Vinyl Chloride production via thermal cracking of EDC. In this process, initially EDC is submitted to a thermal cracking, producing VCM and hydrogen chloride (HCl). This HCl is reacted with ethylene via an oxychlorination reaction to generate EDC, that is cracked to additional VCM. The HCl requirement is balanced by purchasing additional EDC from the market.
