Honeywell offers CCUS solutions to carbon-intensive industry in Indonesia


In order to meet Indonesia's recently issued carbon capture regulations, electrical company Honeywell provides a full suite of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) solutions to support high carbon emission industries.

The company said its CCUS solution provides end-to-end emissions management for high-carbon-intensive industries, including oil and gas, energy, cement, steel, refineries, chemical and petrochemical industries. In addition, its key carbon capture products include chemical solvents like AmineGuard™ process, AmineGuard™ FS process and Benfield ACT-1 activator, together with physical solvents like Selexol™ process, also cryogenic technology and thin film technology.

“Honeywell technologies are ready now to capture carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes and store them underground or utilize them for other purposes, such as enhanced oil recovery or the production of synthetic, sustainable fuels,” said Steven Lien, Honeywell President Southeast Asia and Chief Commercial Officer High Growth Regions. “Both pre- and post-combustion carbon capture can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support the transition to a low-carbon economy", he added.

Through Honeywell's CCUS solution, enterprises can detect, measure, monitor and reduce the emission of more than 20 kinds of greenhouse gases. Its customers currently capture 40 million tonnes of CO2 per year, equivalent to the emissions of more than 8.6 million cars.

Indonesia is the first country in Southeast Asia to provide a regulatory framework for the implementation of CCUS technology. The country has many geological resources with potential as a carbon capture storage site and several industrial projects have been launched, most of which are expected to be operational by 2030.

Luky Yusgiantoro, Executive Advisor to the Chairman of Indonesia's Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Task Force (SKK Migas), stated: “Indonesia has geological formations that can be used to store carbon emissions permanently with the right technology. Decarbonizing upstream and heavy industries is a critical step to realizing Indonesia's net-zero goal by 2060.”

He added: "The recently introduced [Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources] regulation MEMR No. 2/2023 is aimed at motivating and facilitating upstream industries in Indonesia to reduce carbon emissions. SKK Migas will continue to play an active role in the deployment of CCS/CCUS in Indonesia in the operational areas of the upstream oil and gas sector."

Sofia Subur, Honeywell UOP Indonesia's country manager, said: “Other Indonesian heavy industries can also accelerate decarbonization journey and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions today by adopting proven technologies that best fit their business such as leak detection and remediation, and energy efficiency and optimization.”

Other Honeywell technologies are also helping Indonesia achieve its goal of net zero emissions by 2060, including the production of blue hydrogen through carbon capture; the production of renewable fuels from electric methanol or ethanol, biomass and oil; battery energy storage systems and plastics circularity through advanced chemical recycling.
