Tagged with: | | | | | |

Chemical industry news : Indian Peroxide Limited (IPL), a specialty chemicals manufacturer, has launched a new hydrogen peroxide plant complex located in Dahej in the Indian state Gujarat.

The hydrogen peroxide plant, which manufactures industrial grade hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) offered in 35%, 50% and 60% concentration, has a capacity of 125 tons per day (TPD).

In addition to the new plant, Indian Peroxide will invest Rs 7.5 billion in the coming 3-5 years with plans to ramp up capacity of other chemical plants leveraging synergy with the new hydrogen peroxide plant in Gujarat.

The hydrogen peroxide facility, which began its first commercial delivery in October, 2018, produces 45000 tons of hydrogen peroxide. Located in the industrial hub of Dahej, the facility, which is spread over 1,50,000 sqm, the facility is among the biggest hydrogen peroxide plants in India.

Production process at the Dahej hydrogen peroxide plant is based on a technology offered by Sweden-based Nuberg.

According to Indian Peroxide, the H2O2 plant is expected to address the growing local demand of the commodity by the paper and pulp, textile, waste water treatment and other industries.

Further, the new hydrogen peroxide plant is expected to help reduce India’s import bill for H2O2. Last year, India imported a quarter of its total hydrogen peroxide consumption from other countries, said Indian Peroxide.

AK Tyagi – Chairman and Managing Director of Indian Peroxide, said: “IPL’s new hydrogen peroxide complex is a flagship project for the Indian market to support its growing demand for premium quality and environment friendly hydrogen peroxide. With best-in-class engineering and technology, we will set standards in terms of product quality, efficiency and environmental friendliness.

“The Swedish technology used in the production process ensures high quality H2O2 that will help end users to deliver better quality products to their customers.”
