The article reports that Degussa has been signed up by the Russian space agency to supply highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide fuel to its Soyuz rockets. Degussa will be supplying 82.5% pure hydrogen peroxide, which requires special care during transportation. The supply contract initially covers five rocket launches from the new European space center in Kourou, in French Guyana. The first lift-off is scheduled for the end of 2008.
