ABSTRACT
The article provides information on formic acid. The largest use of formic acid, accounting for about 19% of global demand, is as a silage additive in Europe, while almost 15% of global demand is as a preservative in animal feed. Global capacity was 610,000 tonne/year in 2005. The price depends on the active ingredient content as well as its purity. There are four commercial routes to formic acid, including methanol carbonylation to methyl formate and hydrolysis of methyl formate.
