(HON) Honeywell International Invests for Global Warming

Honeywell International Inc. (HON) is focused on meeting the rising demand for low global warming material used in insulation and aerosols. Through a planned investment of $33 million in its Baton Rouge, La., manufacturing facility, the company will increase the production capabilities of such products. The Baton Rouge facility of Honeywell is a prominent provider of refrigerants in the U.S.

Honeywell will be producing new low-global-warming-potential (GWP) blowing agent and propellant (technical name: HFO-1234ze) on a commercial scale from the upgraded facility. HFO-1234ze production is expected to start in late 2013.

The Baton Rouge facility has been producing beneficial and energy efficient products for its clients for a long time. The investment enables the facility to become a prime provider of next generation technology for meeting low-global-warming aerosol propellants, foam blowing agents and refrigerants. The new products expand Honeywell’s existing portfolio of low-global-warming-potential products, helping the company to mitigate a rising worldwide concern in a cost effective manner while fulfilling all the environmental regulations.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized HFO-1234ze to be used safely and sold in foam and aerosols. The material is being used in Europe and Japan. Europe has a large number of consumers.
