Chemetry and Braskem will construct and operate a Demonstration Plant using Chemetry’s eShuttle technology for the production of ethylene dichloride (EDC) in Brazil.
The eShuttle technology has been pioneered in Chemetry’s laboratories and fully integrated pilot plant in Moss Landing, California.
The eShuttle EDC Process uses a unique metal halide ion process to produce high purity EDC, a commodity chemical used primarily for PVC production, without the generation of chlorine gas. The process significantly reduces electrical power consumption and production costs compared to the latest generation chlor-alkali processes
