Evonik invests in Chinese hydrogen peroxide plant

April 26/2012

(ei.wtin) -- The German speciality chemicals group Evonik has invested over EUR100m (GBR131m) in a new hydrogen peroxide plant in Jilin, China.

The plant is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013 where it will annually produce 230,000 tons of hydrogen peroxide, which is mostly used as a bleaching agent in the textile and pulp industry.

Recently, Evonik founded Evonik Specialty Chemicals to run the new production facility in Jilin. The company will then supply H202 from the site directly to the adjacent propylene oxide plant run by Jishen Chemical via a pipeline that connects the two.

A long-term agreement is in place between the two companies and Jishen will use the new СHPP0Т process to make propylene oxide from the hydrogen peroxide.

Propylene oxide is mainly used in the manufacturing of polyurethane intermediates, with the polyurethanes then going into making things like upholstery for car seats or furniture.
