Collaborate: Metal Free Process for Hydrogen Peroxide Production

By December 14, 2022February 13th, 2023No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Portland State University’s new scalable production method for hydrogen peroxide in situ with carbonyl compounds. This production method eliminates the need for explosive gas mixtures, is a “green” method for H2O2 production that can be implemented to produce peroxide alongside value-added chemicals, and allows for the production of peroxide on site, which may be utilized in reactions elsewhere by the producer or sold for local use without need for purchase and long-range shipment from a central production facility.

This technology is applicable to flavors and fragrances, major industrial chemicals, peroxide production, dyes and coloring agents, and pharmaceuticals. As of 2022, the global flavors and fragrances market is worth $24.14 billion and is expected to reach $34.19 billion by 2030. 

Portland State University’s scalable production method for hydrogen peroxide in situ with carbonyl compounds is ready for commercialization, and they are looking for industry feedback on their research and potential future collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the Portland State University team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
