Exploring pathways to greenhouse gas emissions reduction

June 7, 2022
One of Honeywell’s newest innovations in renewable fuels is the integration of clean hydrogen with this Ecofining technology.

Andrea Bozzano, senior director of R&D Honeywell UOP, was among the subject matter experts welcomed to the Honeywell Users Group Americas 2022 keynote stage by Jason Urso, vice president and CTO, Honeywell Process Solutions. Bozzano’s role was to discuss what sustainable means for the larger Honeywell organization, and the several pathways to greenhouse gas emissions reduction the company is developing, including the fuel transition, carbon capture technology, and the real-time monitoring of emissions—including fugitive ones.

Honeywell has already been tackling the fuel transition to renewable sources, with its Ecofining technologies for the production of renewable diesel fuel. “The molecules that define these fuels are identical to the types of molecules that are defined and controlled from their petroleum counterparts,” Bozzano said. “You can blend those products seamlessly into fuels.” The process can also use a wide range of feedstocks: plant oils, animal fats, algae oils and cooking oils. “Most importantly, the carbon footprint of the fuels produced in this way is significantly lower than the carbon footprint of their petroleum counterparts,” Bozzano said.
