Evonik in New Zealand

Morrinsville in the Waikato region of the North Island is home to Evonik’s hydrogen peroxide plant. Opened in 1991, the plant was acquired by Evonik in 1998.

In 1998 Evonik took over the production site of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), an environmentally-friendly oxidizing and bleaching agent used predominantly in the pulp and paper, textile, metalliferous mining and food industry sectors. In addition to hydrogen peroxide, the plant also manufactures a high quality down-stream product, peracetic acid, which is used as an industrial disinfectant.
