The Alchemy Workshop is a building with the primary purpose of destroying your unwanted Epic Heroes and giving you a reward for it. The vast majority of Epic Heroes are attained through 10x Hero Hire, which guarantees at least one Epic per hire but is rigged to give far more old weak epics than new ones, so you end up with a million Air Elites and Glory Priestesses. These useless Epics could be fused into your other Heroes, however the EXP gain is negligible, so you are far better off by grinding them into powder.
Which is exactly what the Alchemy Workshop does, you put your unwanted Epic Heroes in, and receive Magic Powder as compensation. Each Epic Hero is worth a base amount of Magic Powder and then a bonus is granted depending on the level of the Heroes: Active Skill, Mercenaries. Hero Level, and Glory Point Level.
Magic Powder has two purposes: Upgrading the Alchemy Workshop, and creating items and resources. The things you are able to create and dependent on the level of the Alchemy Workshop.
The Alchemy Workshop has a significant amount of Hitpoints and beyond unlocking perks leveling also increases Stamina generation and storage. Stamina is a rapidly renewing resource which is used to salvage Heroes. It generally recovers fast enough that most players never run out. Below you can see the requires for each level including: Town Hall level, Upgrade Time, Magic Powder cost as well as the Building stats for each level.

To Salvage a hero they must be Epic quality, unlocked, and not assigned to any formation. You can preview the amount of Magic Powder you will receive before committing. Every Hero has a standard amount of Powder they are worth which can be boosted. Glory points improve the reward, however you get less than if you were to salvage the Heroes one by one. There is a small chance that you will receive a double reward when salvaging.
Leveling the Heroes level, Active Skill, and Mercenary level increases the amount of Powder you receive. If you have the resources to spare you may wish to do so. The sweet spot in terms of cost efficiency is lvl 120, lvl 5 skill, and lvl 15 mercs. This costs 400k exp (~54 coral eggs), 56k souls, and 550 rings. This gives the best powder return for cost yielding 641 additional Powder.
