Solvay is expanding the production capacity of hydrogen peroxide at its Shandong Huatai Interox Chemical site in China. Building on its existing partnership with Huatai Chemical, the alliance will enable the site to produce 48 kilotons of photovoltaic-grade hydrogen peroxide annually by 2025.

“In alignment with China’s ambitious carbon neutrality targets, our collaboration positions Solvay as a key contributor. Leveraging cutting-edge technologies and building on our established presence in the high-purity hydrogen peroxide market, this strategic partnership capitalizes on the rapid expansion of China’s photovoltaic market,” said Philippe Kehren, Solvay CEO.

“This project highlights our commitment to sustainability and strengthens our capability to secure a more significant share of the thriving Chinese market, further enhancing our well-established industrial presence in the region.”
