Acetic acid is a basic chemical product in fields related to electronic materials and fine chemicals, and it is widely used for multiple purposes. Therefore, acetic acid is closely connected with the necessities of life.
Vinyl acetate is produced mainly from acetic acid, and its main uses are in the high-tech industries in such products as photovoltaic materials and industrial films, and high value-added products such as high-performance foaming agents, paints, packaging materials, and adhesives. Products using vinyl acetate as a raw material are harmless to the human body and they are environmentally friendly. They also have high functionality and are used as high-performance insulating materials (building materials).
Hydrogen is widely used as a base material for the refining and desulfurization processes of crude oil, and is also used as a raw material for chemical products and processing gasses in chemical plants. In addition, it is garnering a lot of attention as an potentially important source of renewable energy going into the future, for things such as hydrogen vehicles and hydrogen fuel cells, and also for being an environmentally-friendly raw materials that contributes to environmental safety.
