Mar 2020. The majority of furfuryl alcohol is used in the production of furan resins for foundry sand binders in the metal casting industry. Currently, furfuryl alcohol is used mainly in binders for the traditional furan no-bake system and in smaller quantities in furan hot-box, warm-box, and gas-hardened processes. In its main application, the foundry business, furfuryl alcohol competes primarily with phenol, the feedstock for phenolic resins. The production and use of furfuryl alcohol is centered in China; in addition, China has captured most of the global foundry business. Little change is expected in the near future, and any growth in the global industry will depend on activity in China.
