FMC is one of the largest North American producers of calcium
peroxide. Our ISO 9002 Certified production facility in Tonawanda, NY
boasts over 70 years of peroxygen experience. FMC manufactures high
quality, food grade calcium peroxide.
Calcium peroxide’s slow oxygen release properties make it an ideal,
cost-effective and natural alternative for use in soil remediation and
in other environmental and industrial applications such as hydrogen
sulfide abatement in wastewater. As a non-halogenated conditioning
agent for the baking industry, it strengthens the gluten wall in dough
for better texture, moisture retention and yield. Calcium peroxide has
applications in oral care and agriculture to promote seed germination.
FMC developed PermeOx® Plus a solid peroxygen, a controlled-release
calcium peroxide based compound that provides a slow release of oxygen.
The oxygen is produced directly at the soil interface where the
microbes are living. As a solid, PermeOx® Plus is ideal for use in
contaminated soil cleanups such as landfarming and soil biopiles.
PermeOx® Plus is a proven, safe, easy to use method. PermeOx® Plus can
speed up the bioremediation process and offer even lower treatment cost
with other bioremediation methods such as magnesium peroxide.
