CHEMICAL + OIL & GAS INDUSTRY | DIETHYLENE GLYCOL (DEG)
Diethelene glycol (also known as DEG, 2,2-oxydiethanol and glycol ether ether diglycol) is a clear, colourless, odourless liquid with the formula C4H10O3. It is soluble both in water and in many organic compounds and has hygroscopic properties which makes it a useful industrial chemical.
Diethylene glycol has a variety of uses in industry. The tobacco industry makes use of its hygroscopic properties and uses it as humectant in tobacco production. This same property also makes it useful in the treatment of paper, cork, glue, and cellophane and it is utilised as a dehydrant in the natural gas industry where it removes the water from the gas pipelines. Diethylene glycol is also used as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of unsaturated polyester resins, plasticisers, acrylate and methacrylate resins, and urethanes. In the U.S. and Western Europe 51% of DEG is consumed in this way.
