Hydrogen Peroxide Technology Solvay's Signs First myH2O2 Agreement
Solvay and its affiliate Peroxidos do Brasil have agreed with Suzano Papel e Celulose to build a small dedicated hydrogen peroxide production unit using Solvay's myH2O2 technology, at Suzano's pulp mill site in Imperatriz, Maranhão, Brazil.
Brussels/Belgium – This is the first agreement that Solvay has signed for its myH2O2 peroxide technology, developed for installation at remote customer premises. This unit will use Suzano's hydrogen feed-stock, utilities and site services and supply all of the site's hydrogen peroxide needs for pulp bleaching. It will be controlled from Solvay's peroxides plant in Curitiba, about 2,700 km south of Imperatriz.
The myH2O2 units, with production capacities ranging from 5 kilotons to 20 kilotons a year, have a low environmental footprint as they limit H2O2 truck supplies and re-use the hydrogen already available from other production processes on the customer's site. Peróxidos do Brasil is a joint venture between Solvay and Produtos Quimicos Makay.
