Recycling of paper saves water, energy, reduces waste, and protects the environment. H2O2 supports the deinking process and prevents the alkaline yellowing of the secondary fibers. Applied in a post-bleaching stage, the brightness is improved and recycling paper of high quality is produced.
Chemical and Mechanical Pulp
Hydrogen peroxide is used in the pulp industry as a major oxidant for chemical and mechanical pulp bleaching. H2O2 ensures excellent brightness values with high brightness stability and without generating halogenated by-products in the pulp and in the effluent.
