Groundbreaking ceremony for Evonik’s new hydrogen peroxide plant in Jilin
Investments totaling more than a hundred million-euro sum
25-04-2012: An official ceremony was held on April 21, 2012 to mark the groundbreaking for Evonik’s new hydrogen peroxide plant in China.
The plant is scheduled to go online, with a planed annual production capacity of 230,000 metric tons, at the end of 2013, thus increasing Evonik’s current overall annual capacity for around 600,000 metric tons of H2O2 production by nearly 40 percent.
Evonik Industries recently founded Evonik Specialty Chemicals (Jilin) Co., Ltd. (ESCJ) 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 Co., Ltd. via a pipeline that will link the two facilities. A long-term supply agreement is in place between these companies. Jishen will use the so-called HPPO process to make propylene oxide from the hydrogen peroxide. Propylene oxide is used chiefly in the manufacturing of polyurethane intermediates. The polyurethanes then go into making things like upholstery for car seats or furniture. The HPPO process was developed by Evonik in collaboration with ThyssenKrupp Uhde GmbH.
