Brenntag to market Evonik’s hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid for pharma, cosmetics biz

MULHEIM DER RUHR, GERMANY: Brenntag AG said Evonik Industries AG is introducing new hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid grades for drug, medical products and cosmetics manufacturers, responding to increasingly more stringent regulatory requirements in these close-to-consumer industry segments. In Europe, customers will receive tailored solutions, enabling them to provide end consumers with safe and fully certified products, it said.

In addition to their existing product portfolio for the cosmetics industry, Evonik is expanding its spectrum for the pharma industry by offering active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) produced on the basis of good manufacturing practice (GMP). As the central point of production, Weissenstein in Austria is currently being certified according to GMP guidelines. This will make Evonik the first hydrogen peroxide manufacturer in Europe with a fully back integrated production, Brenntag said.

Brenntag Europe, Middle East and Africa is Evonik’s partner in many European countries for the marketing of hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid product portfolios in the personal and health care market segment. Product marketing will be launched in the middle of the year, spanning a total of 25 countries in Europe, the company said.

“With this partnership, we offer our customers access to our specialized product portfolio and can guarantee high reliability and security of supply,” said Michael Traxler, head, active oxygens business line, resource efficiency segment, Evonik Industries.

“Brenntag and Evonik are ideal partners because together we can guarantee a continuous and reliable production and supply chain for hydrogen peroxide products throughout Europe,” said Jan Joop Alberts, marketing director, specialties, Brenntag Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid-based products are also used as environment friendly disinfectant and bleaching agents. Evonik Industries is the world’s second largest hydrogen peroxide manufacturer with production capacities at twelve sites on six continents, Brenntag said.
