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.
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.
BioKT is one of the largest chemical distributor in Europe.
BioKT is handling the storage, transport, export & import formalities of Mono Ethylene Glycol globally.
