Solvay said on Wednesday that it has signed an agreement with the Russian investment company Siberwood to examine the construction of a new hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) plant in Russia, using Solvay’s innovative ‘myH2O2’ technology. The process is particularly suitable for large customers requiring secure onsite production in remote areas.
Solvay and Siberwood are assessing the possibility of Solvay building a satellite H2O2 production unit, known as myH2O2, on Siberwood’s greenfield project in the Krasnoyarsk, Siberia region, where Siberwood will produce 900,000 m.t./year of pulp. The onsite unit would be fed by the excess hydrogen feedstock from Siberwood’s upstream chemicals plant and supply H2O2 to Siberwood. Siberwood would also provide other utilities and site services to Solvay’s satellite production unit.
Solvay Peroxides operates 17 plants in North and South America, Europe, the Mideast, Asia and Australia. It runs the world’s biggest H2O2 plant at Map Ta Phut, Thailand. With joint venture partner Peróxidos do Brasil, Solvay Peroxides is developing a new small satellite plant concept,’ myH2O2′, especially designed for installation at customer sites in remote locations.
