Metal, Mining, Oil, and Gas
In the future, supplying energy will call for novel and sustainable solutions. Pipes made from polyamide manufactured by Evonik can also be used to transport gas where this was possible only with steel pipes in the past.
Corrosion and the associated costs for maintenance and renewal will become history. Special monomers from Evonik also help increase the efficiency of oil and gas recovery.
Drilling for oil is one of the hardest jobs in the world - not only for the people involved, but also for the materials that have to withstand extreme temperatures, high pressures, crude oil, hydraulic fluids and corrosive media, such as hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide. Polyamide 12 from Evonik is also able to stand up to these extreme stresses in the oil and gas drilling industries.
Hydrogen peroxide is an old standby in metal working. It is one of Evonik's oldest products and, at the same time, one of the most innovative. In metallurgical processes the product is used as an environmentally friendly oxidizing agent.
CyPlus, a wholly owned Evonik subsidiary, is a reliable and experienced supplier of cyanides for the worldwide mining industry. The company complies with the extensive and strict specifications of the mining industry in accordance with the regulations of the International Cyanide Management Code (ICMC).
