Ethylene oxide is a toxic substance that was previously used to make biocides. Ethylene oxide is flammable and explosive, so it is not easy to transport over long distances. It is widely used in washing, pharmaceutical, printing and dyeing industries. In chemical-related industries, it can be used as a starting agent for cleaning agents. American chemist Lloyd Hall patented the ethylene oxide sterilization method for preserving spices in 1938, a method that is still used today.
1.Chlorohydrination: First pass Ethylene and chlorine gas into water to generate 2-chloroethanol, and then react alkali (usually milk of lime) with 2-chloroethanol to generate Ethylene Oxide.
2.Oxidation: Using air or oxygen with a concentration of more than 95% (volume) as the oxidant, ethylene oxide is prepared through three processes of reaction, ethylene oxide recovery and ethylene oxide refining.
The monthly filling output of Jinhong ethylene oxide liquefied gas (100% pure EO, EO:CO2 mixed gas) for cylinder sterilization is over 200 tons.

Ethylene oxide has a bactericidal effect, does not corrode metals, has no residual odor, and can kill bacteria (and its endospores), mold and fungi, so it can be used to sterilize some items that cannot withstand high temperature sterilization and gas bactericides for materials. Ethylene oxide is widely used to disinfect medical supplies such as bandages, sutures, and surgical instruments.
Fumigants for ethylene oxide are often used in the preservation of grains and foods.
Ethylene oxide is mainly used in the manufacture of ethylene glycol (raw material for polyester fiber), synthetic detergents, nonionic surfactants, antifreeze agents, emulsifiers and ethylene glycol products, as well as in the production of plasticizers, lubricants, rubber and plastics, etc. It is widely used in washing and dyeing, electronics, medicine, pesticides, textiles, papermaking, automobiles, oil exploration and refining and many other fields.

Ethylene oxide is a broad-spectrum, high-efficiency gas bactericidal disinfectant. It has strong penetrating power to disinfected items, can reach the deep part of the items, and can kill several pathogenic microorganisms. Both gas and liquid have a strong antimicrobial effect. Because the gas has a strong effect, it is often used for disinfection.
Ethylene oxide is a gas disinfectant that is highly toxic to the human body and can cause poisoning reactions in humans. Long-term exposure to a small amount will cause neurasthenia syndrome and autonomic dysfunction.
EO is chemically active and can undergo secondary transformation in the environment. Its photochemical reaction will cause urban photochemical smog and cause secondary pollution. In addition, because of its high toxicity and secondary environmental hazards, it is included in the list of toxic and harmful volatile organic compounds for air pollution control by countries all over the world.
