Contents on the CD Rom

  • Propylene oxide is used globally as an intermediate to produce numerous products. Polyether polyols account for 60-70% of the global propylene oxide production, propylene glycol 20%, and propylene glycol ethers account for a further 5%. The polyether polyols are primarily used in the production of polyurethane foams
  • Propylene oxide  is used as an herbicide or fumigant for dried fruits, cocoa, spices, processed nutmeats, and other dry foods
  • Products containing the active ingredient Propylene oxide are eligible
    for reregistration with Environment Protection Agencies (EPA) provided that the risk mitigation measures outlined in this document are adopted and label amendments are made to reflect these measures
  • EPA is requiring that all vacuum sealed pressurized chambers used in Propylene oxide fumigation be equipped with emission reduction technology, that a buffer zone of 180 feet be maintained around fumigation facilities that are not vacuum-sealed pressurized chambers, and that an 8-hour time weighted average concentration limit of 2 parts per million for occupational
    exposure be satisfied.
