Meeting tighter emissions goals with low cost CO2 capture using Honeywell H2 Solutions Technologies

Senior Offering Manager, Hydrogen
Demand for hydrogen is expected to increase up to ten-fold by 2050, with industry reports predicting 8% to 24% of the world’s final energy demand will be supplied by hydrogen. Hydrogen has a unique ability to address ‘hard-to-decarbonize’ sectors, including refining, chemicals, steel, heating, long-haul transport, and long-term power storage – all of which currently produce significant CO2 emissions. For hydrogen to enable decarbonization of these sectors, it must be produced with significantly lower carbon intensity than is practiced today. Further, each of these sectors will require the supplied hydrogen to meet purity and pressure specifications tailored to the end use. To meet the demand of all these burgeoning markets, both hydrogen production from hydrocarbons with carbon capture, utilization and storage and production from renewable energy via electrolysis will be required. Today, customized and integrated carbon capture and hydrogen purification technology deliver the most cost-effective and proven routes to low carbon intensity hydrogen. This presentation will share the latest examples of hydrogen production and CO2 capture systems optimized to serve various end-use applications for hydrogen and CO2, including both existing and new assets.
