  • The chemical compound 1,2-dichloroethane, commonly known by its old name of ethylene dichloride (EDC)
  • EDC  is a chlorinated hydrocarbon, mainly used to produce vinyl chloride monomer.
  • EDC  is a colourless liquid with a chloroform-like odour.
  • 1,2-Dichloroethane is  used generally as an intermediate for other organic chemical compounds, and as a solvent.
  • In Industry sources Ethylene dichloride is used in refinery in making leaded petrol, plastic manufacturing process, chemical manufacturing sectors,  in  paint and varnish manufacturing .
  • EDC is made by the chlorination of ethylene via one of two processes: direct chlorination and Oxychlorination.
  • In Direct Chlorination is the reaction of chlorine and ethylene
  • In the oxychlorination process, pure ethylene and hydrogen chloride, mixed with oxygen, are reacted at 200-300oC and 4-6 bar in the presence of a catalyst, usually cupric chloride.
  • The low temperature process has the advantage of low by-product formation but requires more energy to recover the EDC.
  • The high temperature process utilises the heat of reaction in the distillation of the EDC, leading to considerable energy savings.
  • Many EDC plants are integrated with vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) production.
  • EDC demand is expected to increase globally at an average annual rate of approximately 3.5 percent, helped in large measure by growing demand in Asia .
  • Ethylene dichloride, being flammable, is rarely used alone.
  • When mixed with carbon tetrachloride  is extensively used as a liquid grain fumigant for bulk storage in bins or on floor.
  • As a good apolar aprotic solvent, 1,2-dichloroethane is used as degreaser and paint remover.
