ESSEN, GERMANY/JILIN, CHINA: Evonik held an official groundbreaking ceremony on 21 April 2012 for its new hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) plant in Jilin, China. The plant will have a production capacity of 230,000 metric tonne and expected to start by the fourth quarter of 2013, thus increasing Evonik’s current overall annual capacity for around 600,000 metric tonne of H2O2 production by nearly 40 per cent.

Evonik Industries recently founded Evonik Specialty Chemicals in Jilin to run the new production facility. Evonik will supply its H2O2 from Jilin directly to the adjacent propylene oxide plant run by Jishen Chemical Industry via a pipeline that will link the two facilities. Jishen will use the so-called HPPO process to make propylene oxide from the hydrogen peroxide.

“Our investment in Jilin is an excellent example of our strategy to develop innovative technology to access new sales markets for hydrogen peroxide. This move is also part of a growth strategy that sees us making targeted investments in Asia and that will help us to achieve growth in that region,” explained Jan Van den Bergh, Head of Advanced Intermediates Business Unit, Evonik.
