Currently, the three leading commercial methods of PO production are the propylene oxide/styrene monomer (POSM) process, the propylene oxide/t-butyl alcohol (PO/TBA) process (both invented by Lyondell), and the chlorohydrin process.
Three chemicals -- propylene chlorohydrin, phosgene and epichlorohydrin -- account for the vast majority of chlorine use for chemical intermediates (chemicals used to make other products).
