Frequent Questions: Health Information About Ethylene Oxide
Can ethylene oxide cause immediate/acute health effects? Acute (short-term) inhalation exposure to high concentrations of ethylene oxide can cause headache, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, respiratory irritation (e.g., coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing) and, in some cases, vomiting and other types of gastrointestinal distress.
EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) has classified ethylene thiourea as a Group B2, probable human carcinogen. Ethylene thiourea has been shown to be a potent teratogen (causes birth defects) in rats orally or dermally exposed. See also. Mercaptobenzothiazole - a cyclic dithiocarbamate also used as a vulcanization accelerant
Companies now required to report ethylene oxide spills to state
Companies that use ethylene oxide as part of their operations will now have to report any spills or releases of the gas to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division.
Ethylene Oxide Emissions: Frequent Questions | EPA
Ethylene oxide is a volatile compound, meaning that it does not persist for a long time in the environment. Its estimated half-life in the atmosphere is 69 days (during summer months) to 149 days (during winter months). Ethylene oxide reacts in the air to form formic acid, which is a naturally occurring chemical.
