- Wood’s hydrogen plant technology coupled with Honeywell UOP EcofiningTM process technology and carbon capture and storage can reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions 100% when compared to petroleum-based aviation fuels.
- Widespread use of Honeywell and Wood technologies have potential to remove the equivalent of 34 million metric tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by 2030.
Wood and Honeywell have announced a comprehensive package of technologies to support the effort to produce carbon-neutral aviation fuel. 当一起使用, 的技术, which are based on Honeywell’s UOP Ecofining process technology and Wood’s hydrogen plant technology, could reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 100% using certain feedstocks when compared to traditional petroleum aviation fuel.
The UOP Ecofining process technology converts waste oils, 脂肪, 并将油脂注入霍尼韦尔绿色喷气燃料TM这是一种航空燃料的临时替代品. 当使用原料时，例如使用过的食用油, lifecycle GHG emissions can be reduced by 80% at this stage compared to conventional petroleum jet fuel.
As the next step in enhancing the Ecofining process technology offering, Wood’s technology will be integrated to use the byproducts of the UOP Ecofining process technology to produce re新able hydrogen, reducing lifecycle GHG emissions a further 10% when compared to the total GHG emissions produced by conventional petroleum jet fuel. The re新able hydrogen is then injected back into the Honeywell Ecofining process to remove feed impurities and create a cleaner burning re新able fuel.
二氧化碳(CO2) that is generated from the production of the hydrogen can be captured and routed for permanent underground sequestration using the Honeywell H2 sands澳门金沙集团技术套件, further reducing lifecycle GHG emissions an additional 10% when compared to the total GHG emissions produced by conventional petroleum jet fuel. The combination of technologies results in an aviation fuel that is effectively carbon neutral compared to petroleum fuels.
“The combination of these technologies from Honeywell and Wood greatly reduces fossil carbon dioxideemissions compared to traditional fuels by using byproducts to provide hydrogen for the Ecofining process,本·欧文斯说, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Sustainable Technology sands澳门金沙集团. “作为一个结果, a re新able fuels refinery can be essentially self-sustaining in hydrogen production while reducing the carbon intensity of the re新able fuels to very low levels.”
“Wood has a rich history of collaborating on technology developments with Honeywell and together we are 现在 producing solutions for the production of carbon-neutral re新able fuels,安迪·海明威说, 总统, 能源, 优化, 和创新, 在木. “This solution utilizes our long-established experience in hydrogen plant technology to help fuel producers reduce operating costs while meeting sustainability goals with proven, 可靠高效的技术.”
最近,美国.S. 美国能源部(DOE.S. 美国交通部(DOT).S. 农业部(USDA), and other federal government agencies worked together to introduce the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Grand Challenge with a goal to produce 3 billion gallons per year of sustainable aviation fuel by 2030 in the U.S. If those 3 billion gallons of SAF were produced using Honeywell’s comprehensive package of technologies, it could result in the equivalent of 34 million metric tons of cumulative carbon dioxide avoided per year, 这取决于所使用的油和脂肪混合原料.
