More work is being done in the US Gulf Coast to slash carbon emissions, with Honeywell and EnLink Midstream unveiling plans to jointly deliver carbon capture solutions for industrial-scale carbon dioxide (CO2) emitters in the area.

The duo on Thursday (9th June) said they will together market Honeywell’s range of carbon capture technologies, as well as its hydrogen purification technologies, on the Mississippi River corridor from New Orleans to Baton Rouge.

EnLink’s planned CO2 pipeline transportation network will also be a focus for the pair.

Barry David, Chairman and CEO of EnLink, said, “EnLink has existing pipeline infrastructure and decades of experience operating these assets in the Gulf Coast region. When coupled with Honeywell’s proven carbon capture and hydrogen technologies, we can provide customers with a cost-effective approach to CO2 capture and transportation that will ultimately accelerate carbon reductions in a key industrial region.”

As well as decarbonising the US Gulf Coast, the partnership’s commitment is also aligned with Honeywell’s goal to achieve carbon neutrality at its operations and facilities by 2035. As part of this the firm plans to conduct a feasibility study to retrofit its existing assets in Louisiana with its CO2 technology and EnLink’s transportation and sequestration solution.

Honeywell’s new advanced solvent CO2 capture and hydrogen solutions allow for CO2 to be captured, transported, and stored at a lower cost through greater efficiency, while allowing for smaller equipment and lower capital operational expenses needed to run the plant compared to existing technologies1.

Vimal Kapur, President and CEO of Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies, said, “Collectively, as an industry we need to act. By harnessing the unique strengths of Honeywell and EnLink and simplifying the process of carbon capture and hydrogen production, we envision an ecosystem that can accelerate industry-wide emissions reduction within this key region in North America.”
