Solvay Announces Commissioning of World’s Largest Hydrogen Peroxide Plant

Solvay, an international chemical Group, has commissioned the world’s largest hydrogen peroxide (HP) facility. The new plant is located in Map Ta Phut, Thailand and it has an annual production capacity of more than 330,000 t of HP at 100% concentration.

The production process of the Thailand facility is based on the company’s proprietary high performance HP technology. The technology minimizes investment and production costs and also offers considerable environmental benefits like decrease in energy consumption and waste water production.

Siam Cement Group (SCG) and Dow receive HP as a raw material from the new plant for production of propylene oxide (PO). PO is increasingly used to manufacture glycol ethers, polyurethanes and propylene glycol. When compared to conventional PO production technologies, PO production with HP delivers exceptional economic and environmental advantages.

Though the new Thailand facility is mainly constructed to supply HP for the Dow-SCG JV HPPO plant, it also delivers materials to Solvay Peroxythai (SPX), one of the leading HP manufacturers in South-East Asia. The plant will double the current production capacity of SPX and ensures long-term supply for its clients.

General Manager of Solvay’s Strategic Development Unit Essential Chemicals, Eric Mignonat stated that the world-scale plant helps the company to expand its Hydrogen Peroxide business within a rapid growing region such as Thailand.
