Print this page

US: Performance materials and technologies conglomerate Honeywell has entered into a collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin for the development of carbon capture systems. Honeywell has obtained a licence to use the university’s proprietary advanced solvent technology. The University of Texas at Austin will provide consulting services for the company as it seeks to develop a carbon capture system for industrial implementation using the technology. Honeywell will target ‘hard-to-abate’ CO2 emitting industries such as cement to which to supply its system.

University of Texas at Austin McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering professor and Texas Carbon Management Program (TxCMP) lead Gary Rochelle said “We are thrilled that our decades of research has led to carbon capture technology that can significantly reduce carbon emissions. The licensing agreement with Honeywell enables us to commercially scale this in ways that can make major contributions toward zero emissions efforts to address global warming and to reduce pollutants in surrounding communities.”
