JAKARTADAILY.ID – Honeywell announces its commitment to supporting industries in Indonesia to reduce CO2 emissions with its proven Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) technology. The technology and solutions were presented during a discussion held in Jakarta on July 25, 2023.

Indonesia becomes the first country in Southeast Asia to implement a government regulatory framework to promote carbon capture and storage, receiving Honeywell's support in high-emission industries with CCUS technologies and solutions. These industries include oil and gas, energy, steel, cement, refineries, chemicals, and petrochemicals.

Honeywell's CCUS technology enables industrial players to detect, measure, monitor, and mitigate over 20 greenhouse gases. Foreign companies already using Honeywell's CCUS technology can capture 40 million tons of CO2 per year, equivalent to the emissions of over 8.6 million cars.

"Honeywell's technology is ready to capture carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes and store them underground for various applications, such as extracting crude oil or becoming feedstock for sustainable synthetic fuel production," said Steven Lien, President of Honeywell Southeast Asia and Chief Commercial Officer High Growth Regions.

Honeywell's CCUS technology and solutions include chemical solvents like AmineGuard™ Process, AmineGuard™ FS Process, and Benfield ACT-1. These technologies employ various solvents, such as monoethanolamine, capable of capturing CO2.

The technology uses solvents to capture CO2 by employing adsorbents, and through Cryogenic Process, it captures CO2 by cooling and drying exhaust gas in industrial chimneys. Meanwhile, the membrane technology captures CO2 through dissolution and blending via a solid separating filter.

With numerous CO2-emitting industries in Indonesia, such as coal-fired power plants, natural gas processing, oil refineries, and chemical plants, there are plenty of geological storage resources that could potentially serve as carbon capture locations across the country. Some related projects have already commenced, and most are targeted to start operating before 2030.

"Indonesia has geological formations suitable for permanent carbon storage when using the right technology," said Luky Yusgiantoro, Expert Staff to Chairman of SKK Migas.

"Decarbonizing upstream and heavy industries is a crucial step towards achieving Indonesia's Net Zero Emission target by 2060. The government regulations, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation 2/2023 introduced this year, aim to motivate and facilitate upstream industries in Indonesia to reduce carbon emissions. SKK Migas will continue to actively participate in the implementation of CCS/CCUS in the upstream oil and gas sector in Indonesia," he added.

Other Honeywell technologies that can help Indonesia achieve its Net Zero Emission goal by 2060 include Blue Hydrogen via CO2 capture, renewable fuels made from e-methanol/ethanol, biomass, as well as grease, oil, lubricants, battery energy storage systems, and advanced chemical plastics circularity.

"Other heavy industries in Indonesia can also start reducing their greenhouse gas emissions. They can adopt proven technologies that suit the scale and readiness of their operational facilities. Honeywell's technologies ready to support include Leak detection & Remediation, and Energy efficiency & Optimization," said Sofia Subur, Country Manager UOP Indonesia.

"By implementing the right technology and solutions for their businesses, non-upstream heavy industries can do their part now to reduce their carbon emissions," she concluded.
