Applications and production capacity of Mono Ethylene glycol

Ethylene glycol, also known as EG, MEG, Mono Ethylene glycol, cas 107-21-1, is an important organic chemical that is widely used in plastics, coatings, resins, fuel cell and other fields. By 2022, the total global production capacity of Ethylene glycol will be about 25 million tons/year.

Asia is the main region for global Ethylene glycol production, and countries and regions such as China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan have large production capacity. Among them, China is the world's largest producer of Ethylene glycol and has relatively complete Ethylene glycol production facilities and technology.


In addition, the United States, Europe and the Middle East also have certain Ethylene glycol production capacity.

However, with the continuous development of global economy and the improvement of people's living standard, the demand for Ethylene glycol and other chemical raw materials is also increasing. Therefore, Ethylene glycol manufacturers need to continuously improve the technology level and capacity scale to meet the market demand. At the same time, strengthening environmental protection governance and reducing energy consumption and emissions during production are also key to the sustainable development of the Ethylene glycol industry.

The main uses of Ethylene glycol are as follows.

1. Anti-freeze: Ethylene glycol is a common ingredient of anti-freeze because it has a low freezing point. It is often added to automotive cooling systems to prevent water from freezing and thus prevent engine damage.

2. Solvent: Ethylene glycol is a common organic solvent used in the manufacture of chemicals such as resins, plastics and paints.

3. Medical applications: Glycol is used as a solvent and diluent in the medical field, especially in the pharmaceutical field for the manufacture of medicines and cosmetics.

4. Hydration agent: Ethylene glycol can be used as a hydration agent for water molecules in the manufacture of products such as food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

5. De-icing agent: Due to its anti-freezing properties, ethylene glycol is also used as an aircraft de-icer and road de-icer.

6. Fuel cell: Ethylene glycol can be used as one of the fuels for fuel cells to produce electricity.

7. Other applications: Ethylene glycol is also used in the manufacture of plastics, textiles, rubber and antifreeze, among other products.
