Evonik to build hydrogen peroxide plant in China

Evonik Industries AG (Essen, Germany; www.evonik.com) will build a new production plant for hydrogen peroxide in Jilin Province in northeastern China. An investment of more than one hundred million Euro in the project sees Evonik moving another step forward in its endeavor to access new sales markets for this environmentally friendly oxidant. Scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013, the plant will boast an annual production capacity of 230,000 metric tons (m.t.), thus increasing Evonik’s current overall capacity of around 600.000 m.t./yr for H2O2 production by nearly 40%. The Group believes it is the world’s second-largest manufacturer of hydrogen peroxide. Evonik will supply its H2O2 from Jilin directly to the adjacent propylene oxide plant run by Jishen Chemical Industry Co., via a pipeline that will link the two facilities. A long-term supply agreement has already been concluded between the companies. Jishen will use innovative technology — the so-called HPPO process — to make propylene oxide from the hydrogen peroxide. This summer, Evonik and Uhde GmbH (Dortmund, Germany; www.uhde.eu) entered a licensing agree­ment with Jishen Chemical Industry Co. Ltd. for its use of the HPPO process. Propylene…
