Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) is a white, crystalline solid that is widely used in a variety of industrial applications. It is highly soluble in water and forms a clear, colorless solution. Calcium Chloride is produced by the reaction of hydrochloric acid and limestone, and it is widely available in both anhydrous and hydrated forms.

Calcium Chloride (CaCl2) is a substance composed of two ions, Calcium and Chlorine.  In the process of dissolving this substance, a significant amount of heat is released. The solid type is available in the form of flakes, grains (granules) or lumps. Calcium Chloride is one of the important salts of Calcium which has industrial, agriculture and medicinal uses. Food Grade Calcium Chloride is in purity of 94-96% and Calcium Chloride 78-80% is used in industrial applications. This odorless substance absorbs moisture, therefore, it should be packaged and stored in conditions that prevent air contact with this product.

Production of Calcium Chloride


There are two general ways to produce Calcium Chloride. The first is the natural salt process. By purifying natural salts that are produced from salt lakes and salt deposits. The second method is limestone and Hydrochloric Acid process. Limestone can be mixed with Hydrochloric Acid to form Calcium Chloride and Calcium Dioxide. This process is mostly used for food and pharmaceutical industries.



  1. Oil and petrochemical industry:

In the oil and gas industry, Calcium Chloride is used as a drilling fluid, helping to maintain the stability of the borehole and reduce the risk of formation damage. It is also used as a completion fluid, helping to flush out any remaining drilling mud or debris from the wellbore.

  1. Deicing and preventing road freezing:

One of the most important uses of Calcium Chloride is as a de-icing agent for roads and highways. When spread on ice and snow, it helps to melt the ice and snow, reducing the risk of accidents and improving road safety. In addition, Calcium Chloride can also be used as a dust suppressant for unpaved roads, helping to reduce the amount of dust and dirt that is kicked up by vehicles.

  1. Calcium Chloride in Food industry:

Calcium Chloride is also widely used in the food and beverage industry as a firming agent, a flavor enhancer, and a preservative. It helps to improve the texture of fruits and vegetables and can be used to preserve their freshness for longer periods of time.

  1. Calcium Chloride usage in Pharmaceutical

In the pharmaceutical industry, Calcium Chloride is used as a therapeutic agent, helping to regulate the body’s fluid and electrolyte balance. It is also used as a calcium supplement for patients with calcium deficiencies.




Despite its widespread use in many industries, Calcium Chloride can have negative environmental impacts when released into the environment. It can contribute to soil and water pollution, leading to damage to natural habitats and harm to aquatic life. Additionally, the production of Calcium Chloride can result in the emission of greenhouse gases, contributing to global climate change.

In conclusion, Calcium Chloride is a versatile and widely used chemical in many industries. Its applications range from de-icing roads and highways to its use as a therapeutic agent in the pharmaceutical industry. However, it is important to consider the potential environmental impacts of its production and usag

Safety tips

Improper consumption of Calcium Chloride can pose serious health and safety risks. This chemical can lead to burns, excessive thirst, irritation of the digestive system and other serious health effects. It can also irritate the skin by causing excessive dryness. In severe cases, exposure to or ingestion of this chemical can cause skin burns, heart disorders, respiratory problems and seizures. CaCl2 is not flammable, but if it comes in contact with metals such as Zinc or Sodium, it may produce flammable hydrogen. It is corrosive to some metals such as steel, ferrous metals and brass and shouldn’t come in contact with Sulfuric Acid.
