Demand for green solvents
that avoid any of a number of potential environmental pitfalls will advance at an above average pace, offering growth opportunities in many otherwise mature applications.
, also called dearomatized hydrocarbon solvents
or ultra-low aromatic solvents
, are a class of hydrocarbon solvents
that are characterized by the presence of paraffinic, iso-paraffinic, and naphthenic components with very low aromatic content (<2%).
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Bio-based Solvents
6-Dimensional Assessment, finds that the total market value of bio-based solvents
is expected to reach $8.
used in gel spinning are commonly removed from the gel filaments by evaporation at elevated temperature , In the case of decalin, a preferred volatile spinsolvent for UHMWPE, solvent
vapor from the evaporation process is typically recylced [6, 7], Recycling decalin vapor adds complexity to the spinning process not withstanding the potential dangers it introduces.
Although there have been a considerable number of experimental investigations on oil shale kerogen swelling in single solvents
, there are few data found covering swelling in binary solvent
Halogenated hydrocarbons are the solvents
of choice for condensation cleaning.
It might seem that testing of incoming solvents
is not particularly important and is less of a concern than deciding which ones to put in formulations in the first place.
The total market for Green Solvents
and Bio Solvents
has been analyzed based on the Porter's five forces model.
extraction; classical and novel approaches.
Demand growth for green solvents
will significantly outpace that for conventional types, rising nearly four times faster than conventional solvents
We found that laboratory workers who had worked with solvents
had more than double of the rate of severe RP and have published the survey in the Journal of Rheumatology (3).
Health hazards associated with solvents
include flammability, carcinogenicity, toxicity, mutagenicity, and a host of other ills.
