Honeywell announces sustainable solutions for methane reduction

American giant Honeywell reinforced its commitment to helping customers reduce greenhouse gases in hard to abate industries such as oil and gas production and hydrocarbon dependent industries by hosting a regional workshop on methane reduction.


Customers can choose from a variety of sustainability solutions offered by Honeywell's Emissions Management Solution (EMS) to help them meet their emission reduction targets and comply with regulatory requirements. It has an automated data gathering system, software, and cutting-edge, hazard area approved wireless gas leak detecting technology to instantly detect methane leaks.

By integrating a holistic and proactive solution that provides actionable insights and drives emission reduction strategies, customers will be able to produce accurate, auditable and near real-time time reports of their total methane emissions across their infrastructure within Asia.

Honeywell is a major contributor to the book Methane Abatement for Oil and Gas: A Handbook for Policymakers and has collaborated with the U.S. government and its clients in the oil and gas sector in their global efforts to promote methane abatement. The US Department of State's Bureau of Energy Resources released an open-access, plain language handbook called the Office of Commercial Law Development Program (CLDP) with the goal of assisting policymakers in lowering methane emissions from oil and gas activities.

 “Honeywell is a trusted partner that helps organisations solve the world’s toughest and most complex challenges, with actionable solutions for industrial automation, the future of aviation, and the energy transition. It’s an honour for us to work with multiple stakeholders and use our proven technologies and experience to help companies throughout Asia with methane-intensive operations be better positioned to meet their sustainability goals.” commented Robert Kester, PhD, Chief Technology Officer, Emissions, Honeywell Process Solutions.

“Unprecedented collaboration is needed between the private and public sectors to work together to reduce methane emissions,” opined YC Lim, Honeywell president for Malaysia and Singapore. “Operators are facing market changes that require sustainable solutions to accelerate lower greenhouse gases while maintaining profitability and yield. Employing a reputable partner that can provide the technology, software and outcome-based services is critical to meeting those goals.”

Honeywell is committed to achieving carbon neutrality in its operations and facilities by 2035 and recently announced a new set of commitments that further advance its sustainability goals, including committing to set a science-based target with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) that will include scope 3 emissions and participation in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Climate Challenge. The company also supports the Paris Climate Agreement. These efforts build on the company’s track record of sharply reducing the greenhouse gas intensity of its operations and facilities as well as its decades-long history of innovation to help its customers meet their environmental and social goals.

The reduction of methane emissions is one of the most cost-effective and impactful methods to help reach global climate and environmental goals, according to the International Energy Agency. Senior representatives of governments and oil and gas industries from seven Asian countries, as well as the U.S. Department of State attended the event at Honeywell’s regional headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.
