How can carbon capture technology lead us to a cleaner future?
When it comes to “carbon neutrality”, I believe everyone will think of technologies such as reducing carbon emissions and energy transformation. But even if the promotion of clean energy is in full swing, in production and life, there are still some “have to produce” carbon dioxide, where should they go?
——This requires the use of carbon capture technology to “capture” the carbon dioxide produced in the production process, and properly use or store it, thereby helping to reduce carbon emissions.
How does it work? And how is it applied? Today, a few questions will take you closer to carbon capture technology and help you quickly grow into a sustainable “action group”!
01 How is carbon capture achieved?
As “carbon catchers”, “big carbon emitters” such as liquefied natural gas, hydrogen plants, steel plants, cement plants, power plants, and petroleum refineries are all “stages” for carbon capture technologies to show their talents. And how to capture carbon dioxide in the production process is undoubtedly the most critical issue.
Currently, there are two common carbon capture methods:
02What scenarios does it apply to?
Although in order to compress and transport carbon dioxide, most enterprises have to face certain equipment and construction costs, but looking at the entire sustainable process, carbon capture technology still has great potential for the environment and value:
For example, for industries that cannot achieve complete decarbonization in the short term, carbon capture can help them achieve their own carbon reduction goals in the transition stage without affecting production; for some industries and regions, compared with other As a way to reduce carbon emissions, a low-cost solution based on carbon capture technology may be more efficient and economical, and it is a more suitable choice for carbon reduction.
03 What carbon capture technologies do we have today?
It is precisely because of the advantages of carbon capture technology in terms of environmental and economic benefits that Honeywell has been promoting its “realization and blossoming” for many years.
For the two capture methods before and after combustion mentioned above, we have developed “solvent carbon capture technology” including UOP ASCC chemical solvent and SeparALL™ process physical solvent.
Typical “blue hydrogen application technologies” such as pressure swing/temperature swing adsorption (PSA/TSA) systems, carbon dioxide fractionation and membrane separation technologies. Among them, the advanced solvent carbon capture technology specially designed for post-combustion flue gas can capture more than 95% of carbon dioxide! *
With the blessing of these technologies, Honeywell currently has excellent carbon dioxide capture capabilities, and based on these mature process technologies and services, we have also provided cooperative support for many clean energy and carbon capture and utilization projects around the world— —For example, just last year, Honeywell joined hands with Sinochem’s Sennics Technology Co., Ltd. to assist in the implementation and advancement of its clean coal-to-hydrogen and carbon capture and utilization demonstration projects.
Pursuing the road of sustainable development is also a road of continuous strengthening and innovative solutions. No matter how many challenges we face, there will always be people who insist on seeking. For a cleaner future and high-quality development, Honeywell is willing to be a sustainable “actionist” and “explorer”, adhere to the sustainable development strategy, and help more green technologies and solutions come to fruition!
