There are 4 main prevailing processes for ethyl acetate production, i.e. Direct Esterification Process, Acetaldehyde Condensation Process, Ethanol Dehydration Process and Acetic Acid-Ethylene Addition Process. Each process has its advantages and its applicable services. Our process is based on reactive-distillation esterification, which is mature, low costing and suitable for those with acetic acid feedstock.
Advantages of Our Ethyl Acetate Plant and Process Technology
In our reactive distillation process, organic acid catalyst is used; its advantages cover the followings:
? Low ethanol consumption
? Low catalyst dosage
? High catalysis activity
? Low equipment corrosion
? Less side reactions
? Higher product purity
? Simple post-treatment operations
