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.
