MRC -- Leading peroxide manufacturer Evonik and major Chinese chemicals producer Fuhua Tongda Chemicals Company (Fuhua) have signed a licence agreement for Fuhua to build a new hydrogen peroxide plant in Leshan, Sichuan Province, using Evonik's know-how, said the company.
Furthermore, both partners will evaluate a cooperation to jointly produce and market speciality grades of hydrogen peroxide with the aim to meet the rising demand for those applications on the Chinese market.
The signing ceremony took place on 15 Nov 2023 in Hanau, Germany. According to the agreement, Fuhua will use Evonik licenced technology to build an industrial-grade hydrogen peroxide plant with an annual capacity of 200,000 tonnes.
The envisaged Evonik-Fuhua collaboration would then further purify the hydrogen peroxide into speciality grades for applications such as solar panel production or aseptic packaging for food and beverages.
We remind, Dow and Evonik are proud to announce the successful start-up and operation of a pioneering hydrogen peroxide to propylene glycol (HPPG) pilot plant at Evonik’s site in Hanau, Germany. Collaboratively developed by Dow, the world’s largest producer of propylene glycol, and globally leading hydrogen peroxide manufacturer Evonik, the plant uses the distinct HYPROSYN method to enable the direct synthesis of propylene glycol (PG) from hydrogen peroxide and propylene.
