Honeywell Unveils Cutting-Edge Solutions to Tackle Methane Emissions


Honeywell recently held a regional workshop in Kuala Lumpur, reinforcing its commitment to helping customers in hard-to-abate industries such as oil and gas production and hydrocarbon-dependent industries to reduce greenhouse gases, particularly methane. The event was attended by senior representatives of governments and oil and gas industries from seven Asian countries, as well as the U.S. Department of State.

Honeywell’s Emissions Management Solution (EMS) offers customers in the industrial sectors an array of sustainability technologies that will support their emission reduction goals and their compliance with regulatory standards. It features a combination of innovative, hazard area-certified wireless gas leak detection technology, automated data collection systems, and software to quickly identify methane leaks. By integrating a holistic and proactive solution that provides actionable insights and drives emission reduction strategies, customers will be able to produce accurate, auditable and near real-time time reports of their total methane emissions across their infrastructure within Asia.

Honeywell has formed partnerships with its customers in the oil and gas industry, as well as with the U.S. government, to promote methane abatement globally. The company has played a significant role in the creation of the "Methane Abatement for Oil and Gas: Handbook for Policymakers". “Honeywell is a trusted partner that helps organizations solve the world’s toughest and most complex challenges, with actionable solutions for industrial automation, the future of aviation, and the energy transition”, said Robert Kester, PhD, Chief Technology Officer, Emissions, Honeywell Process Solutions.

“Unprecedented collaboration is needed between the private and public sectors to work together to reduce methane emissions”, said YC Lim, Honeywell president for Malaysia and Singapore. “Operators are facing market changes that require sustainable solutions to accelerate lower greenhouse gases while maintaining profitability and yield. Employing a reputable partner that can provide the technology, software and outcome-based services is critical to meeting those goals”.

Honeywell has pledged to become carbon-neutral in its operations and facilities by the year 2035. Recently, the company announced a new series of commitments that would further advance its sustainability goals. These include setting a science-based target with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and including scope 3 emissions, as well as participating in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Climate Challenge. Honeywell is also a supporter of the Paris Climate Agreement. These efforts build on the company's successful track record of significantly reducing the greenhouse gas intensity of its operations and facilities. Additionally, Honeywell has a long history of innovation, helping its customers meet their environmental and social goals.
