Belgian chemical firm Solvay is debottlenecking its hydrogen peroxide plant in Jemeppe-sur-Sambre (Belgium) allowing an increase of H2O2 production. Further expansions of capacity are planned in Bernburg (Germany) and Voikkaa (Finland). These investments meet the growing product demand in Europe, in existing and new applications.
“Solvay Peroxides is continuously investing in its production capacities in Europe and Middle-East to follow the market demand”, says Charles-Henri Levaillant, General Manager EMEA. “These investments in Belgium, Germany and Finland are part of our long term development plan to optimize our existing production units and reliably deliver product to our clients”
The Solvay plants produce a range of hydrogen peroxide grades serving customers in diverse markets including pulp and paper, aquaculture, food, chemicals and electronics. Solvay Peroxides operates a network of 10 plants and one Research and Innovation center in the EMEA zone. This strong presence enables Solvay to ensure a reliability of supply in the region for hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid and sodium percarbonate.
