Honeywell says that Aker Carbon Capture has selected Honeywell as a key contributor to its work on some of the world’s largest carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage endeavors focused on helping Europe reach its long-term climate goals. Aker Carbon Capture will use Honeywell’s software, along with its proprietary tools, for research and development (R&D) in key project operations.

Heavy industry continues to be one of the most significant contributors to man-made carbon emissions that some scientific research* implicates as a primary cause for climate change. Several governments are working with companies to capture carbon emissions during production. European governments are developing onshore terminals to receive liquified CO2 from industrial capture sites. The terminals process and deliver liquified CO2 by pipeline to an offshore storage location under the ocean for permanent storage. Some of these projects will be critical drivers in helping Europe meet its ambition of carbon-neutrality by 2050 through the scaling up of CO2 capture across the continent.

“Honeywell software helps make some of the world's largest buildings and industrial facilities safer, more sustainable and more efficient,” said Stuart Morstead, VP and GM for Honeywell Connected Industrial. “We are pleased to be bringing our software solutions to Aker Carbon Capture as we work together to help Europe meet its carbon neutrality goals.”
