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.
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.
"We believe that this technology will help us to be more competitive and efficient, as it will allow us to reduce costs in the purchase of an important input that we bought from another state. The forecast volume includes our increased capacity, which will be implemented in 2017," says Walter Schalka, CEO of Suzano Papel e Celulose.
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.
