Hydrogen peroxide is a relatively strong oxidizing agent that we can reliably supply to customers within those regions where we have a production footprint.

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is used as an agent in the bleaching of both mechanical and chemical pulps, supporting elemental chlorine free (ECF) bleaching and as the main product in totally chlorine free (TCF) bleaching methods. Hydrogen peroxide is also used by many other industries as a specialty oxidant; such applications include water and metal treatment, textile bleaching and even as a pharmaceutical.

From production facilities in Norway, Sweden and the USA, we offer our customers stabilized aqueous hydrogen peroxide solutions under the brand name Eka HP. As a bulk supplier, we offer mainly concentrations of 35%, 50%, 59% and 70% delivered in ISO containers, railcars and tanker trucks. Product grades, concentrations and delivery alternatives vary by market and not all alternatives are globally available.

We offer hydrogen peroxide that is produced using an energy-efficient and cost-effective solution.

The most common method today for producing hydrogen peroxide is the anthraquinone auto-oxidation process. An anthraquinone solution continuously circulates in a closed loop and is the carrier for the controlled reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. Thanks to our patented fixed-bed catalyst, we have improved the hydrogenation process, and avoid the need for a complicated filtration process. We achieve highly efficient use of raw materials and energy from this easy-to-operate process.

With the objective of reducing carbon footprint we have focused on reducing energy requirements for our production. Wherever possible, our manufacturing facilities obtain their energy from renewable sources. Additionally, in-place environmental and control systems minimize emissions to the atmosphere and water.

Illustration showing the production process of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is produced in a five-step process: Hydrogenation → Oxidation → Extraction → Drying/reversion → Distillation, according to the following (simplified) reaction: H2 + O2 → H2O2.
