Production process:
1.Epoxy fatty acid methyl ester
At present, the development of the production of epoxy fatty acid methyl ester is relatively fast, and the production process of this product will produce a large number of by-products.

2.A by-product of pentaerythritol method
Pentaerythritol production process by calcium hydroxide alkaline reaction conditions, adding formic acid and calcium hydroxide neutralization process also by-product calcium formate, the income of formic acid calcium higher quality in the subsequent reactions.

3.Neutralization method
Formic acid and calcium carbonate react to forming a refined product of calcium formate.

4. Storage: Storage precautions,Warehouse ventilation and low temperature drying
