Our initial focus of the eShuttle™ platform is the production of ethylene dichloride (EDC) with sodium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. In the conventional production method, salt and water are electrochemically split through the chlor-alkali process to produce chlorine gas, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. The chlorine gas then reacts with ethylene gas in the direct chlorination process to produce ethylene dichloride. We use the same feedstocks to produce the same products with our lower energy metal chloride reaction.
A Free Energy diagram demonstrates the lower energy required to arrive to the intermediate reactants and achieve the same final products with the same inputs.
