ExxonMobil is looking to lower its emissions at its Baytown complex.
Honeywell recently announced that one of its carbon capture technologies will be deployed by ExxonMobil and integrated into Exxon’s low-carbon hydrogen production facility in Baytown, Texas.
The technology is expected to enable the capture of approximately 7 million tons of CO2, annually.
It is anticipated that Honeywell’s CO2 Fractionation and Hydrogen Purification System (the name of the company’s carbon capture technology) will enable ExxonMobil to capture about 7 million tons of carbon dioxide each year. This amount of emissions is equivalent to the yearly emissions produced by 1.5 million automobiles.
More specifically, the carbon capture technology that will be integrated into ExxonMobil’s low-carbon hydrogen production facility will allow the facility to capture over 98% of associated CO2 emissions. The CO2 that is captured is expected to be sequestered and stored permanently by ExxonMobil.
ExxonMobil’s low-carbon hydrogen facility in Baytown will become the largest in the world.
