Hydrochloric Acid Electrolysis Market Overview


HCl electrolysis is deployed where recycling of hydrochloric acid or hydrogen chloride is desired. The HCl electrolysis market is mainly driven by the fact that the process makes the companies independent of the volatile prices of hydrochloric acid and chlorine in the foreign market.


Recovery of chlorine from HCl has become a major commercial venture due to insufficient purity chlorine or low density to be able to recycle it. Instead, it is neutralized in industries before being discarded to meet strict environmental requirements. Although recovery by catalytic oxidation processes has been studied since the nineteenth century, its high operating conditions combined with slow reaction kinetics and low one-pass conversions make electrolysis a better alternative. This work aims to develop a new electrolysis process that, unlike traditional processes, effectively recovers chlorine and hydrogen from dilute HCl. For this, an electrolysis cell with an anion exchange membrane was designed, which allows only the passage of chlorine anions from the catholyte to the anolyte, separating the gases in one step.


The purpose of hydrochloric acid electrolysis was to recover chlorine and hydrogen from industrial residual HCl simultaneously and study the effect of parameters such as power concentration, operating time, electrode distance, current density, conversion, and current efficiency, which are presented in the following sections.


In 2023, Century Lithium Corp. is delighted to share an update on its ongoing Feasibility research for its Clayton Valley Lithium Project ("Project") in Clayton Valley, Nevada, and has begun a market research on sodium hydroxide as a soluble by-product. The neutralizing reagent generated by the chlor-alkali plant is sodium hydroxide, sometimes known as lye, caustic soda, or just caustic. In the plant, sodium hydroxide is produced as a byproduct of the generation of the leaching reagent, hydrochloric acid, in an amount slightly bigger than the production of hydrochloric acid itself. The acid and base are both produced in liquid form at concentrations ranging from 30 to 37%. Hydrochloric acid is entirely utilized in the leaching process.

About the electrolytic market of hydrochloric acid:


HCl electrolysis allows chlorine recovery from hydrochloric acid and hydrogen chloride and has several advantages, such as greater sustainability of operations for companies. HCl electrolysis is implanted where hydrochloric acid and hydrogen chloride recycling is desired. Hydrogen chloride is a by-product of several chemical industry processes that use chlorine due to its high reactivity for the selective formation of the desired products. In most cases, chlorine is removed, and the latter is chlorine-free. The simple recycling of HCl by electrolysis eliminates the need for on-site chlorine production, even chlorine transport. The HCl electrolysis market looks promising during the forecast due to the main target factors, such as freeing up the trade of volatile chlorine and HCl prices, reducing the need to develop new alkaline chlorine plants, reducing the risk of transporting HCl, and reducing costs for Neutralization and disposal. HCl. The global HCl electrolysis market will grow at a growth rate of 5.11% over the forecast.


Hydrochloric acid electrolysis market:


Initially, many processes are developed to recover chlorine, such as electrolysis (UHDE ODC) and catalytic oxygenation (MT Chlorine). Although the recovery of chlorine from HCl has been studied for more than 100 years, the recovery of hydrogen and chlorine is less studied by comparison. With this in the background, the current study reports the simultaneous recovery of chlorine and hydrogen from industrial wastes using the electrolysis process. An attempt was made to study the effect of several parameters that significantly affect the conversion.


The recovery of hydrogen and chlorine, if developed, will have plenty of room for industrial application. An example is the phosgene-mediated production of toluene isocyanate (TDI) isocyanate;
