One of those chemicals, Hydrochloric Acid (HCl), is currently in short supply. This is a result of the economic slump, which is causing a reduction in chlorination processes in the chemical sector that produce HCl as a by-product.
Traditional fracking fluids rely of hydrochloric acid, which allows the industry to crack shale rock. Therefore this shortage could have a significant impact in the production of natural gas. HCl is also used for a number of processes within the pharmaceutical sector
Some industry groups such as Rx-360 are advising companies to contact their HCl suppliers to verify their ability to supply the chemical and examine the supply chain for vulnerabilities that could cause supply interruptions and product authentication concerns.
Celeritas Chemicals of Southlake, TX is a company that specializes in providing assistance to companies affected by these changes, by providing them with alternative sources of raw materials and helping companies realize significant cost savings or solve quality problems.
