EkO Peroxide, Columbus, Mich., USA, will raise prices on hydrogen peroxide in North America, by $0.03 per pound on bulk shipments and by $0.04 per pound on semi-bulk shipments, effective immediately or as contracts permit. The company notes that increases in cost structure necessitate the price increase, to maintain a sustainable operation.

Formed in November 2006, EkO Peroxide is a joint venture between Eka Chemicals, Marietta, Ga., and OCI Chemical Corp., Seoul, South Korea. It operates a 70,000-tpy hydrogen peroxide facility and distributes product throughout North America. Eka Chemicals, with some 2,570 employees in 28 countries, is a business unit within AkzoNobel, The Netherlands.
