Title: Hydrogen chloride gas (HCl); production mix for PVC production, at plant (Location: RER)


Raw data for polymerization and intermediate products are collected by several producers in Europe; the average is calculated by the consultant based on the production capacity of the companies. The LCI result is calculated with background data from the Boustead database.

Synonyms: Anhydrous hydrochloric acid, Chlorohydric acid, Hydrochloric acid, Hydrochloride

Technical Purpose: Hydrogen chloride has many uses: as a chemical inter-mediate; in the hydrochlorination of rubber; as a babbitting flux; in the production of vinyl and alkyl chlorides; in the separation of cotton from wool; in the delinting of cotton. Electronic grade is used for etching semiconductor crystals.
