Honeywell UOP technologies selected for large US project to reduce CO2 emissions and produce clean hydrogen energy

April 15/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Honeywell announced Wabash Valley Resources LLC has selected a range of Honeywell UOP technologies to capture and sequester up to 1.65 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually and to produce clean hydrogen energy from a repurposed gasification plant in West Terre Haute, Ind., according to Hydrocarbonprocessing

The project is expected to be one of the largest carbon sequestration initiatives in the United States to date.

By implementing Honeywell UOPs proven technologies for the capture of CO2 and hydrogen purification, we will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, said Dan Williams, Managing Director of Wabash Valley Resources. This project will allow for market access to clean hydrogen, as well as support the domestic growth of the hydrogen economy.

Adding carbon capture and storage to hydrogen production is an economical solution for many companies looking to make significant progress on their sustainability goals, said Laura Leonard, vice president and general manager, UOP Process Technologies.

UOP will provide technology licenses, basic engineering, and specialty equipment including a modular MOLSIV molecular sieve dehydration unit, modular Ortloff CO2 Fractionation unit, and Polybed pressure swing adsorption (PSA) unit to sequester carbon dioxide and process synthesis gas from the gasification unit.

The Ortloff CO2 Fractionation technology will produce a high-purity liquid CO2 stream while separating a hydrogen-rich stream that will be purified by the PSA unit. The CO2 stream will be sent for permanent geological storage, while the hydrogen stream can fuel a hydrogen turbine to generate electrical power.. The hydrogen stream can also be used in chemical synthesis, or marketed as a clean transportation fuel.

As MRC reported earlier, in Marhc 2021, Honeywell announced that Hengli Petrochemical Co. Ltd. successfully used Callidus burner technology from Honeywell UOP to minimize nitrogen oxide (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions in China, and reduce the impact of these emissions while ensuring safe and stable operations.

Besides, in November, 2020, Honeywell announced Zhenhua Petrochemical Co. Ltd will use Honeywell UOPs C3 Oleflex technology for propane dehydrogenation to process 1 million metric tons per year of polymer-grade propylene for a proposed plant in Dongying City, Shandong Province, China.

Propylene is the main feedstock for production of polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 141,870 tonnes in January 2021 versus 123,520 tonnes a year earlier. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.
