Honeywell unveils emissions management solution for reducing methane emission


Honeywell has introduced Emissions Management Solution (EMS), an automated and continuous outcome-based solution that simplifies methane emissions measurement, monitoring, reporting and reduction at the plant-level for a wide range of industrial markets. The EMS offering features a combination of innovative, hazard area certified wireless gas leak detection technology, automated data collection systems, and software to quickly identify methane leaks and process vents to help reduce production losses; while providing a streamlined and optimized reporting process; which helps customers as they strive to achieve their corporate sustainability targets and align with global government emission regulations.

Methane leaks are a significant contributor to climate change, as methane is more than 25 times as potent as carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere over a 100-year period according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Methane leaks can also have a significant business impact. In 2021 alone, the global oil and gas industry wasted $ 19 billion of natural gas due to methane emissions.

The current state of methane emissions monitoring techniques traditionally relies on top-down periodic manual, and manual labour-intensive practices which can result in imprecise, fragmented data and reactive maintenance procedures. Customers utilising EMS can now continuously track and measure real-time emission baseline levels, providing precise data to proactively manage equipment and maintenance.

“Honeywell’s Emissions Management Solution offers customers in the industrial sectors an array of ready-now sustainability technologies that will support their emission reduction goals and their compliance with regulatory standards.“By integrating a plant-level 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 all platforms,” said Adrian Fielding, General Manager of Emissions Control and Reduction at Honeywell Process Solutions.

Key components and benefits of EMS include:
  • Innovative wireless gas leak detection technologies made up of Honeywell’s Versatilis Signal Scout wireless Industrial IoT leak detection sensors and Rebellion Gas Cloud Imaging cameras, which allows for organizations to quickly identify, quantify, and reduce fugitive and process methane leaks that could impact worker safety or lead to production loss.
  • An accurate and reliable data collection system with Honeywell’s Experion Elevate, a scalable cloud-enabled SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) solution for OT/IT, removing the need for periodic manual reporting and offering flexible, proactive analytical insights to optimise energy use and improve operational efficiency
  • An outcome-based service program featuring Honeywell’s Emissions 360 (E360), a solution that generates key performance indicators and equips customers with actionable, automated, and manual emissions reduction tactics
  • Plant-wide visualization and reporting system that enables predictive maintenance and reduces plant downtime while providing a complete and integrated near real-time analysis of Scope 1 emissions

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 US 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. In 2021, approximately 60 per cent of Honeywell’s new product introduction research and development investment was directed toward products that improve environmental and social outcomes for customers.
