ammonium | 09 February, 2017 10:28

Calcium carbide is a chemical compound with numerous industrial applications. When combined with water, it produces acetylene gas, which is used in welding and cutting torches. According to the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, calcium carbide also constitutes a key component of most polyvinyl chloride (PVC) produced in China. The compound has been produced since the late 1800s by reacting lime and coal in a furnace. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that particulate matter and other byproducts enter the environment as a result of calcium carbide production, but hydrocarbon emissions from the production of calcium carbide are minimal. Calcium carbide is a reality that all mango lovers will have to face, going by its rampant use for ripening the fruit at the Gaddiannaram Agricultural Market Yard in Kothapet Fruit Market. Carbide is skillfully packed into small sachets and scattered into the piles of mangoes at the market, ready to be exported to various destinations.Sporadic media furore and official action against the use of this chemical compound with proven carcinogenic properties, has not deterred commission agents, who are visibly irritated at its mere mention.
