Dedication to Innovation
Over the last century, the world’s population has quadrupled and the standard of living increased seven-fold. All of this has been fueled by the oil and gas industry — powering our vehicles, homes, factories and offices, furnishing our clothing, purifying our water, and providing life-saving medical technologies. These advances were made possible largely by technology from Honeywell UOP.
Part of Honeywell’s Performance Materials and Technologies business group, UOP has more than 3,000 active patents, a global presence, and a century of experience using breakthrough chemistry and engineering to power global growth.
Our processes generate the most value from every drop of oil, every cubic foot of natural gas and every ton of coal. They produce cleaner fuels that adhere to the world’s tightening specifications, and petrochemicals to make plastic films, resins, and fibers. These solutions produce less waste and allow flexibility to adjust to the ever-changing slate of feedstocks.
UOP developed the first biodegradable detergents, unleaded gas and the catalytic converter. Honeywell Green Diesel™ and Honeywell Green Jet Fuel™ require no changes to engines or fuel infrastructure and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than two-thirds. And our advanced adsorbents can clean even the most contaminated industrial wastewater.
In nearly 150 natural gas plants around the world, UOP technologies improve the recovery of valuable methane and natural gas liquids while removing sulfur, carbon dioxide, and water – making natural gas safe for transport, storage and use.
And as refineries and petrochemical plants become more complex, UOP’s deep process knowledge, combined with software expertise from Honeywell Process Solutions, will enable oil and gas companies to operate far more efficiently and profitably.
UOP provides reliable technical service and support, with expertise in plant operations, asset management, customized training, strategic and tactical support, troubleshooting, and engineering services. Our commitment to innovation is based on an extensive network of laboratories and pilot plant facilities. UOP’s worldwide sales, support and manufacturing facilities includes locations in the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
Well into the future, the demands of our society will be met by an energy economy powered by hydrocarbons. With natural gas use expected to grow by 65 percent, and oil by 20 percent, meeting these demands will depend on innovations and technologies developed by Honeywell UOP.
At Honeywell, we’re building a world that’s safer and more secure, more comfortable and energy efficient, and more innovative and productive.
