The global market for lithium-ion batteries, which are widely used in electric-powered vehicles, PCs, tablets and cell phones, is growing rapidly. Hydrogen peroxide is added to the leaching process of LiB recycling technology and helps recover the valuable and rare metals lithium and cobalt.
Semiconductor and Electronics Manufacturing
PERTRONIC® H2O2 meets the stringent purity and stability requirements of the electronics industry. Therefore, it is well suited as an oxidizing agent for critical wafer cleaning and surface conditioning in transistor or copper formation. High purity hydrogen peroxide is used in the etching of printed circuit boards.
Solar Panel Manufacturing
In order to be able to use light waves from the energy-rich ultraviolet range to generate electricity, nanoparticles of silicon are applied to the solar modules. Hydrogen peroxide is used to dissolve the nanoparticles out of the crystalline silicon so that the nanolayer can be coated onto the solar module after evaporation of the alcohol.
