2-ethyl Hexanol (octanol) - Manufacturing Plant, Detailed Project Report, Profile, Business Plan, Industry Trends, Market Research, Survey, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials, Feasibility Study, Investment Opportunities, Cost And Revenue

PRODUCT PROFILE: 2 Ethylhexanol (2 EH) is an organic compound. It is a branched, eight-carbon alcohol. Usually the most part becomes 2-Ethylhexanol chemical appropriates reprocessed. It is a colorless liquid that is nearly insoluble in water but soluble in most organic solvents. It is produced on a massive scale as a precursor to plasticizers, some of which are controversial as potential endocrine disruptors. Almost all 2 ethylhexanol is converted into the diesters bis(2 ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), a plasticizer. Because it is a fatty alcohol, its esters tend to have emollient properties. For example, the sunscreen octocrylene contains a 2 ethylhexyl ester for this purpose. It is also commonly used as a low volatility solvent. It is miscible with most organic solvents but has very limited miscibility with water. Product characteristics: • Appearance - Transparent liquid • Chemical formula - C8H18O • Molecular weight - 130.2 • Vapor Pressure at 20°C, mmH - 0.06 • Density at 20°C lb/gal - 6.94 • Boiling Point, °C at 760mm Hg - 184.6 • Specific Gravity - 1.173(+/-) 0.002 • Closed Cup Flash Point °F - 16 Features: • Readily forms esters with various acids • Very limited miscibility with water • Low volatility solvent • Enhances flow and gloss in baking finishes • Non-HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutant) Solvent Applications of 2-ethyl hexanol (octanol): • Manufacture of low volatility esters (for example, dioctylphthalate) • Low volatility solvent (for resins, animal fats, waxes, vegetable oils and petroleum derivatives) • Used as Ethoxylates • Used as Herbicides • Extractant production (heavy metals) • 2-Ethylhexanol is used in the production of plasticisers, acrylates. • It is also used as a solvent in the paint and varnishes industries • Wetting agent in textile industry. 2-Ethyl Hexyl Acrylate produces soft and tacky film with excellent low temperature flexibilities. It is used as a co-monomer with vinyl acrylates and other acrylates, to manufacture water based resins for paints, textiles and paper coatings, leather finishing resins and pressure sensitive adhesives. It is also used as a co-monomer in solvent polymers for industrial metal finishing. The other minor uses of octanol are in pesticides, surface active in the manufacture of octanoic acid, which is used, in the form of its metal salts, in the manufacture of odourless paint driers. GLOBAL SCENARIO: 2 Ethylhexanol is produced industrially by the aldol condensation of n butyraldehyde, followed by hydrogenation of the resulting hydroxyaldehyde. About 2,500,000 tons are prepared in this way annually. The n butyraldehyde is made by hydroformylation of propylene, either in a self contained plant or as the first step in a fully integrated facility. Most facilities make n butanol and isobutanol in addition to 2 ethylhexanol.The demand for oxo alcohols would go up steadily in India in the coming years. Considering the growth in demand for oxo alcohols, strong case exists for capacity creation. Firm supply source for propylene for the project is important. PVC is the important user industry for phthalate plasticizers. The demand for phthalate plasticizers would largely move in tune with the performance and growth of the PVC industry. Indian demand for octanol is estimated around 60,000 tonnes per annum and estimated growth ratio of octanol is 7%.
