Hypower to use Honeywell UOP hydrogen technology for clean fuel cells

May 22/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Honeywell announced that Beijing HyPower Energy Technology Ltd., a leading hydrogen energy technology provider in China, will adopt Honeywell UOP technologies to supply high-purity hydrogen for fuel cells, said Hydrocarbonprocessing

HyPower agreed to adopt a range of Honeywell UOP solutions including Polybed pressure swing adsorption (PSA), thermal swing adsorption (TSA) and other adsorption-based technologies to purify hydrogen fed into fuel cells. Honeywell UOP will provide services, equipment, and adsorbents needed for fuel cell projects.

As a leader in supporting the hydrogen energy economy across China, we are proud to work with Honeywell UOP, a leading provider of hydrogen technologies all over the world to meet the growing demand for hydrogen fuels, said Zhiwei Zha, chairman of HyPower. China is promoting hydrogen energy use in public transportation, as well as logistics vehicles.

UOPs hydrogen purification technologies can further enhance operational reliability by providing a stable source of high-purity hydrogen, said Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager, Honeywell UOP Process Technologies. We are happy to work with our customers to achieve the vision of a cleaner and more efficient world.

Unlike fossil fuels, such as petrol and diesel, hydrogen is a clean fuel that, when consumed in a fuel cell, produces only water, electricity, and heat. With hydrogen energy growing in importance, and concerns about global warming, automobile manufacturers worldwide have invested in developing hydrogen fuel cells to power vehicles and generate electricity.

Chinese government first included the development of hydrogen stations for new energy vehicles in the Government Work Report in 2019. Other energy-intensive economies such as Germany, Japan and South Korea also share a common vision about hydrogen as an energy source.

Honeywell UOP hydrogen purification solutions provide targeted hydrogen recovery and high product purity levels. Hydrogen can be produced on purpose or can be a valuable by-product.

We also remind that China's greenfield Zhejiang Petrochemical will use a range of process technology from Honeywell UOP for the second phase of its integrated refining and petrochemical complex in Zhoushan, Zhejiang province, according to a document, quoting a senior Honeywell official. "This second phase of the complex by itself will process 20 million tons per year of crude oil and produce another six million tons per year of aromatics when completed," Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager, Process Technology and Equipment, at Honeywell UOP, stated in the document as of January 2019.

ACN is the main feedstock for the production of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's ABS output was 920 tonnes in March. Russian producers manufactured 2,600 tonnes of ABS plastics in January-March 2020, down by 59% a year earlier.
