This program was initiated with the objective of determining the technical feasibility and economic viability of eliminating, within the United States, the discharge of large quantities of chlorocarbon residues which are harmful to the environment through the use of a German process (chlorolysis), which has been used commercially on almost identical residues, to produce a saleable product. The technology selected and analyzed for this purpose is licensed by Hoechst AG (FDR) and through Hoechst-Uhde Corporation (USA) and is known as the 'Chlorolysis Process.' This process has been utilized in West Germany for almost a decade. A large commercial plant (50,000 MT/Yr) incorporating this technology started operation last year. In addition to its established basis, 'chlorolysis' also offers the advantage of handling a wide variety of chlorocarbon waste residues making it especially suitable for use in a regional plant.
