Global Chlor Alkali Market Will Reach 16.2 Billion USD in 2019

Date: 2015-10-18

Chlor Alkali is an industrial process for the electrolysis of NaCl . It is the technology used to produce chlorine and sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which are commodity chemicals required by industry.

Three production methods are in use. While the mercury cell method produces chlorine-free sodium hydroxide, the use of several tonnes of mercury leads to serious environmental problems. In a normal production cycle a few hundred pounds of mercury per year are emitted, which accumulate in the environment. Additionally, the chlorine and sodium hydroxide produced via the mercury-cell chloralkali process are themselves contaminated with trace amounts of mercury. The membrane and diaphragm method use no mercury, but the sodium hydroxide contains chlorine, which must be removed.

It if forecasted that  Global Chlor Alkali market will reach 16.2 billion USD in 2019.
