Highly concentrated, high purity hydrogen peroxide is used as a green rocket fuel in the aerospace industry. High test peroxide (HTP) is used as an oxidizing agent for turbo pumps in the propellant pumps of launch rockets or as a direct propellant for smaller rockets and launch vehicles.
In agriculture, peracetic acid as a biocide is used to ensure hygienic conditions and biosecurity in animal housing and aquaculture, as well as in drip irrigation systems and ensures the disinfection of washing water in post-harvesting processes.
Hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid serve as powerful and sustainable oxidizing agents for chemical synthesis. Evonik also offers its innovative HP+ technologies HPPO and HPPG for the chemical industry.
Cleaning and Sanitation
Peracetic acid-based biocides and hydrogen peroxide have a strong antibacterial and antimicrobial effect and are used for cleaning and disinfection in private, industrial, institutional, and medical facilities.
Cosmetics and Personal Care
High purity and cosmetic grade hydrogen peroxide is not only used in hair care, bleaching, and coloring products but also for oral care and teeth whitening. Our persulfates and food grade calcium peroxide can also be used for these applications.
Our specialty H2O2 grades meet the stringent purity and stability requirements of the electronics industry. They serve as an oxidizing agent for critical wafer cleaning and surface conditioning in transistor or copper formation. As an etchant, they are used in the manufacture of printed circuit boards. In the production of solar panels and in battery recycling, they drive sustainable technologies.
Energy and Mining
The oil, gas, and mining industries rely on our peroxides as strong oxidizing agents and as disinfectants in water and effluent treatment. Our global production network ensures supply security to our customer's remote mines and fracturing sites.
Environment and Water
Environmentally friendly peroxides are increasingly replacing chlorination in water and wastewater treatment. They are also used for air purification, in recycling processes, or for the removal of pollutants from soils and groundwater.
Food and Beverage
Biocides based on peracetic acid are used for disinfection in the food industry - in industrial cleaning of food contact surfaces and beverage plant equipment. They effectively act against various pathogens and therefore ensure food safety, food freshness, and a longer shelf life.
Pharma and Healthcare
Our hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid special grades are used for decontamination of medical devices, surfaces, and rooms, as well as active pharmaceutical ingredients for human use and pharmaceutical excipients.
Peroxides are applied as a versatile bleaching agent for chemical pulp and mechanical pulp. In paper recycling, our products are used for printing ink removal, bleaching of de-inked pulp, and water treatment in paper mills.
Hydrogen peroxide keeps fish healthy in aquaculture, ensures aseptic beverage packaging and foodstuffs, and serves as an environmentally friendly propellant in aerospace applications. In semiconductor and electronics manufacturing applications it used as an effective oxidizing agent.
Peracetic acid is used, for example, prophylactically to disinfect surfaces from the corona virus or as a strong oxidizing agent for chemical synthesis.
Our persulfates are of the highest quality and serve as oxidation and bleaching agents in hair colorants, in galvanization and coating processes, in paper recycling or as polymerization initiators in polymer chemistry and as microetching agents for printed circuit board substrates. In soil and groundwater remediation, they are used to remove contaminants such as heavy metals and organic compounds.
