As prices of feedstocks rise, existing process owners try to reduce costs as much as possible to stay competitive. Process economics are extremely challenging since margins are tight and dependent upon subsidies. At the same time, second generation technology companies struggle to scale up and implement new processes to deliver competitive capex and opex technologies to the market.

​Key business pressures include:

  • Increasing process yield

  • Decreasing energy consumption

  • Reducing water use

  • Adapting to feedstock variations

  • Preventing product giveaway during custody transfer

Honeywell’s Efficiency solutions help reduce operational expenses and maximize process conversions to ensure high yield. Plants can increase production by 5-10%, reduce product giveaway up to $1M per year, and decrease energy use by 1-3%.​

Honeywell’s suite of Advanced Applications helps to increase throughput of a plant, increase yields of the most valuable products and lower cost of production with existing capital resources. The suite can also increase effective capacity by enabling the unit to consistently push up against multiple operating constraints.

Honeywell’s extensive portfolio of solutions ensures improvement in operational effectiveness. These include the Unisim Design Suite to design the process unit better, UniSim® Operations Suite to help train and develop operators and Procedural Operations which help capture knowledge gained by operators over years of performing cyclic procedures that would otherwise be lost during workforce transitions.  

Honeywell’s solutions can also track and report multiple sources of energy usage information against targets so a single energy management program can be implemented.
