Honeywell completes collaboration with SK E&S to distribute its carbon capture tech

Honeywell has announced collaboration with SK E&S to distribute its carbon capture tech to assist SK in the energy transition in Korea and other parts of Southeast Asia.

SK E&S, an energy company, is part of the Korean conglomerate SK Group. The company operates in business across renewable energy, hydrogen, energy solutions, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) industries.

Honeywell and SK plan to utilize Honeywell UOP’s Advanced Solvent Carbon Capture (ASCC) system at a natural gas power plant of SK E&S.

This is to show how carbon capture is essential to decarbonize hard-to-abate ingredients of pollution such as power generation, steel, cement, and petrochemicals.

SK E&S plans to utilize Honeywell’s tech to assemble a portfolio of sustainable solutions in sustainability in Korea.

The technology is made for “post-consumption flue gas applications”. This allows for more than 95% of CO2 capture, claims company. It can be retrofitted in plants operating at present or can be part of new installation.

TB Cha, Head of Net Zero Technology Center at SK E&S, said, “Joining efforts in Korea to deploy Honeywell Advanced Solvent Carbon Capture technology will further complement SK E&S portfolio of end-to-end environmentally friendly solutions to decarbonize both SK E&S’ assets and in the future our customers’ assets, as we aim to be a leader in decarbonizing Korea and Southeast Asia,”

“We look forward to collaborating with Honeywell to demonstrate a competitive and reliable post-combustion capture system for broad deployment.”

Barry Glickman, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions, said, “Working with SK E&S will demonstrate Honeywell’s ready now ASCC technology to help decarbonize fossil-fuel power generation, which is an essential component of the overall energy transition,”

“This collaboration is a key milestone in demonstrating post-combustion capture technology in natural gas power plant applications, allowing Honeywell to showcase its advanced technology and modular equipment supply capabilities.”
