Diethylene Glycol (DEG)
Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is one of the several kinds of glycols which is companies derive it from ethylene oxide and this product is an organic compound.
DEG is a clear, no color, odorless, toxic, hygroscopic liquid with a sweet taste. As well as, it is miscible in water, acetone, alcohol, ether, and ethylene glycol. It is a solvent for some product including nitrocellulose, resins, dyes, oils, and other organic compounds. In addition, the main usage of this organic liquid is mainly as a solvent. The primary design case is based on a production of MEG as main product and DEG and TEG as by-products.
plant design capacity is 400 KTA MEG under shell (Netherlands) license.
This product is used in the manufacture of unsaturated polyester resins, polyurethanes. Also, in plasticizers. Below table provides a summary of the design case.
