JILIN, CHINA: Evonik Industries formally commenced operations at a new hydrogen peroxide plant in Jilin, China. The new production plant has an annual capacity of 230,000 metric tonne. Evonik has invested over €100 million in the site, thereby raising its current global capacity for hydrogen-peroxide production to more than 900,000 metric tonne per annum.

Evonik will supply hydrogen peroxide from Jilin straight to the neighboring propylene oxide plant run by Jishen Chemical Industry Co Ltd, which has likewise been newly erected. A long-term supply agreement was signed for this purpose. Jishen will use the hydrogen peroxide to manufacture propylene oxide on the basis of the HPPO process.

“This investment further consolidates our market leadership for hydrogen peroxide and sees us resolutely pursuing our growth strategy in Asia,” said Dr Klaus Engel, Chairman of the Executive Board, Evonik Industries.
