Energy company SK E&S has business operations across the renewable energy, hydrogen, energy solutions, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) industries, and has been focused on diversifying its portfolio to become a leading global clean energy and solution provider.
SK E&S and Honeywell are deploying Honeywell UOP’s Advanced Solvent Carbon Capture (ASCC) system at a SK E&S natural gas power plant to showcase carbon capture’s vital role in decarbonizing hard-to-abate industries such as power generation, steel, cement, and petrochemicals.
Honeywell’s technology is a key element to SK E&S’s pursuit to build a portfolio of sustainable solutions to provide to its customers as it becomes an early mover in sustainability in Korea.
Joining efforts in Korea to deploy Honeywell Advanced Solvent Carbon Capture technology will further complement SK E&S’s portfolio of end-to-end environmentally friendly solutions to decarbonize both SK E&S’ assets and in the future our customers’ assets, as we aim to be a leader in decarbonizing Korea and Southeast Asia. We look forward to collaborating with Honeywell to demonstrate a competitive and reliable post-combustion capture system for broad deployment, said TB Cha, Head of Net Zero Technology Center at SK E&S.
Post-combustion flue gases
According to Honeywell, its Advanced Solvent Carbon Capture technology is specifically designed for post-combustion flue gas applications, enabling greater than 95 percent carbon dioxide (CO2) capture.
This technology can be retrofitted within existing plants or included as part of a new installation.
Working with SK E&S will demonstrate Honeywell’s ready-now ASCC technology to help decarbonize fossil-fuel power generation, which is an essential component of the overall energy transition. This collaboration is a key milestone in demonstrating post-combustion capture technology in natural gas power plant applications, allowing Honeywell to showcase its advanced technology and modular equipment supply capabilities, said Barry Glickman, VP and General Manager, of Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions.
