Alternatives to ethylene oxide emergency hazard

I am seeking information on reducing large bulk storage of ethylene oxide (oxirane) at manufacturing facilities, including those that produce surfactants for industrial and consumer soaps and detergents. This could include producing the ethylene oxide on-site “just in time” or changing materials. Removing bulk storage of extremely hazardous substances may reduce regulatory burden (inspections, compliance, contingency planning, etc.). Are there vendors out there of alternatives? Other experience with this question?

Thank you,
