Renaissance of Carbon Tetrachloride

Demand for carbon tetrachloride (CTC) has been languishing for years, but now there are prospects for a strong pick-up in consumption. Whereas CTC has traditionally been regarded as a “Zwangsprodukt” or unavoidable by-product of chloromethanes production in the past, new outlets are now emerging.

In view of the improved prospects, Tecnon OrbiChem, in collaboration with NSA, is launching a new multi-client global study on the demand and supply of CTC (carbon tetrachloride). Demand continues for use of CTC as a chemical intermediate into existing applications, of which PCE (perchloroethylene) and DVAC (divinyl acid chloride) are showing no growth. However, demand is expanding into some HFCs, such as HFC-245fa and HFC-365mfc. This is even more the case into the newer HFOs, such as HFO-1234yf and HFO-1234ze. Together, these outlets will add considerably to consumption. A particular factor will be the growing production of HFO-1234yf for use in automotive air-conditioning, as it replaces HFC-134a, which does not consume CTC in its production.

Subject to a minimum number of orders the study will be published in 1H 2018.
