Production

Mono Ethylene Glycol is produced by the oxidation of ethylene at a high temperature in the presence of a silver oxide catalyst.  The ethylene oxide is then hydrated to yield mono ethylene glycol with di and tri ethylene glycols as co-products.

Uses

Monoethylene glycol (MEG) is an important raw material for industrial applications. MEG is utilized in the manufacture of polyester (PET) resins, films, fibers, antifreezes, coolants, aircraft anti-icer and deicers and solvents.

It is also utilised as raw material for paper industry, polyester Resins, adhesives and inks, chemical Intermediates, Heat Transfer, Fluids.

It is also a used as a dehydration agent in natural gas pipelines where it inhibits the formation of natural gas clathrates.
