Thanks to its low toxicity and ease of handling, our hydrogen peroxide has become an important and widely used industrial oxidant.

The main uses of hydrogen peroxide outside pulp bleaching are water treatment and general and hard surface disinfection. Check out our infographic for an overview of applications.

Other commercial uses are:

  • MicrOx™ - A novel solution for pharmaceutical-free water
  • Aquaculture - Nemona® - an effective and sustainable fish-delousing treatment
  • Battery component recycling
  • Mining
  • Odor abatement
  • Toxicity reduction
  • BOD / COD reduction
  • Soil remediation
