Evonik and thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions have agreed to grant a licence for HPPO technology to Zibo Qixiang Tengda Chemical Co. to produce propylene oxide. Corresponding agreements were signed by the parties in Guangzhou in China. In addition, Evonik has licensed the production of hydrogen peroxide for the exclusive supply of the propylene oxide plant to Qixiang Tengda. Furthermore, the companies have entered into a long-term agreement for the supply of the respective HPPO catalyst. Claus Rettig, Chairman of the Board of Evonik Resource Efficiency segment, explains: “We’re proud of having gained Qixiang as a new strategic partner. With environmental awareness on the rise in China, HPPO is the technology of choice for sustainable production of propylene oxide because it produces no major by-products apart from water,” In the next few years Qixiang Tengda will construct a plant complex at the Zibo site (in China’s Shandong province), where up to 300 000 tpy of propylene oxide and the amount of H2O2 required for the HPPO process will be produced.
