Active Oxygens' Mission

Futurize Peroxide

As a global team, we are the peroxide experts. We live our core values of customer proximity, trust, and reliability, and focus on resource efficiency. We will always go the extra mile for our customers to provide hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid, and persulfates with the highest quality and state-of-the-art technology. 

Evonik is an innovative, leading company for high-quality hydrogen peroxide, persulfates, and peracetic acid with a century of global experience and a range of world-class products that enable us to contribute to climate protection. 

Our mission is to future-proof peroxides by developing next-generation solutions, but also to solve current problems in existing applications. We develop new, environmentally friendly solutions based on hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid, define new standards, and shape tomorrow's major trends to improve the CO2 balance and protect the climate.

Our roadmap to CO2 neutrality
Our goal is to reach completely climate-neutral production by 2040 by sustainably supplying our sites with green hydrogen, electricity, and steam. Life cycle analyses support us in identifying emission sources and eliminating them step by step from production through distribution to use by our customers. 

We live our core values of customer intimacy, trust and reliability, and a focus on sustainability and resource efficiency through a positive environmental handprint. We always offer our customers our full commitment to produce peroxides such as hydrogen peroxide, persulfates, and peracetic acid of the highest quality based on state-of-the-art technologies.

Because thorough disinfection is one of the most important measures to protect against viruses like Corona.
