ExxonMobil deploys Honeywell carbon capture tech in Texas


United States – The CO2 Fractionation and Hydrogen Purification System from Honeywell, a carbon capture technology, will be used by ExxonMobil at its integrated facility in Baytown, Texas.

With the use of this technology, ExxonMobil should be able to absorb roughly 7 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, or roughly 1.5 million cars’ worth of emissions.

ExxonMobil’s low-carbon hydrogen production facility will incorporate Honeywell UOP’s carbon capture technology, allowing it to absorb more than 982 percent of related CO2 emissions. ExxonMobil intends to permanently sequester and store the captured CO2.

World’s largest

At projected starting in 2027–2028, ExxonMobil’s Baytown low-carbon hydrogen, ammonia, and carbon capture complex is anticipated to produce around one billion cubic feet of low-carbon hydrogen daily, making it the world’s largest low-carbon hydrogen project. The biggest olefins factory in the US is located at ExxonMobil’s Baytown integrated complex. On over 3,400 acres along the Houston Ship Channel, the site can be found.

Projects around the world

Currently, Honeywell’s CO2 Solutions process knowledge is used to capture 15 million tons of CO2 per year and employ it in storage and usage applications. Via deployed projects around the world that make use of Honeywell CO2 technology, current Honeywell clients have the capacity to capture 40 million tons of CO2 annually.
