Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid uses
Waste water treatment: EDTA is the most widely used chelating agent for removal of remove toxic heavy metal ions in wastewater treatment.
Textile industry: Prevents metal ion impurities from modifying colours of dyed products.
Pulp & paper industry: It inhibits the ability of metal ions, especially Manganese from catalyzing the disproportionation of hydrogen peroxide in chlorine-free bleaching.
Laundry: Reduces water hardness by dissolving scales of Ca2+, Mg2+, and cations, which are then less likely to interfere with soaps and detergents
‘Scrubbing’: Removes hydrogen sulphide from gas streams. This conversion is achieved by oxidizing the hydrogen sulphide to elemental sulphur, which is non-volatile.
Laboratory: Widely used for scavenging metal ions.
Cosmetics: Used in shampoos, cleaners, and other personal care products as a sequestering agent
