Ethylene Glycol is produced from ethylene, which can be produced from Natural Gas Liquids or Naptha from crude oil. The major end use are as a raw material in the production of polyester fibers, PET, antifreeze, film and chip
Purified Ethylene Oxide (PEO) is uses in household products such as soaps and detergents, specialty and industrial chemicals, such as brake fluid, weed killer and urethane foam for the auto industry. MEG is widely used for polyester polymer production. However, in North America and Europe, MEG is also used in the antifreeze industry. DEG and TEG are used in a broad range of industries. DEG’s principle use is to manufacture unsaturated polyester resin, and TEG is used by the oil and gas industry to dehydrate natural gas.
