Ethyl acetate is primarily used as a solvent and diluent for cleaning, decaffeination, paints, perfumes and confectionary. It occurs naturally in wines and is an effective asphyxiant for insects.
The DAVY ethyl acetate process enables ethyl acetate and a valuable hydrogen co-product stream to be produced directly from ethanol. This process has been recognised by a number of awards, including the Kirkpatrick Honour Award.
