The report gives results of the initial phase of the development of a low-emissions ethylene oxyhydrochlorination process for producing 1,2-dichloroethane (ethylene dichloride). First, experimental work on an existing pilot-plant-scale, once-through process was used both to obtain baseline emission data in mass of hydrocarbon (HC) plus ethylene dichloride (EDC) per mass of HCl fed as a function of reactor temperature and percent excess ethylene to the reactor, and to resolve potential problems which may arise in a recycle operation. Second, the existing once-through pilot plant was converted to a recycle operation which then functioned successfully and yielded emission data in mass of HC plus EDC per mass of HCl fed as a function of reactor temperature and percent excess ethylene to the reactor. In particular, the project objective of reducing by 90% the HC plus EDC emissions from an ethylene oxyhydrochlorination process, through the recycling of reactor off-gases, was positively demonstrated. Third, various operating difficulties were assessed which would be important for future control applications and scale-up efforts. Economic analyses are presented to demonstrate the competitive position of the improved process.
