Honeywell partners with DRDO, CSIR-IIP and Government of India
Honeywell today announced that the company is partnering with Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) and with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Researchâ€“Indian Institute of Petroleum (CSIRâ€“IIP), Government of India, to supply molecular sieve adsorbents (zeolites) to accelerate setting up of Medical Oxygen Plants (MOP) in the country to address the ongoing pandemic.
Honeywell UOP has assured a timely supply of adsorbents to enable the country to produce sufficient medical grade oxygen to meet the increased demand, and has partnered with DRDO and CISR-IIP and their associates to identify and supply alternative adsorbents to optimize cost and streamline supply-related logistics without compromising output from plants.
Honeywell has instituted a cross-functional team to support DRDO and CSIR-IIP in this critical project. Scientists from Honeywell UOP, DRDO and CSIR-IP are collaborating to establish the suitability of absorbents for oxygen production in India.
â€śExcellent cooperation is extended by Honeywell in application and supply of zeolite, an important constituent of Medical Oxygen Plants (MOP). This is helping industries to fabricate MOPs,â€ť said Dr. G. Satheesh Reddy, Secretary, Department of Defence R&D, and Chairman, DRDO.
â€śHoneywell is committed to helping India address the current pandemic and is making every effort to find meaningful ways to engage with the Government of India in the fight to save lives,â€ť said Dr. Akshay Bellare, President, Honeywell India.
â€śWe are shipping our global supply of Honeywell UOP adsorbents from Italy to India to help the Government of India install life-saving oxygen plants across the country. Our technologists and scientists are collaborating with DRDO and CSIR-IIP scientists to solve for Indiaâ€™s needs.â€ť
Honeywell UOP, a pioneer in the adsorbents industry, developed the first commercially viable adsorbent for medical oxygen applications more than 40 years ago. The technology enables adsorption of nitrogen from air using a pressure or vacuum swing system to obtain oxygen purity up to 95%.
Honeywell UOPâ€™s range of molecular sieve adsorbents are used in large MOPs. Honeywell UOP also offers OXYSIVâ„˘ molecular sieve adsorbents that help make smaller and more energy-efficient medical oxygen concentrators.
With a legacy of eight decades in India, Honeywell UOP has been a strong partner with both state-owned and private Indian companies to help expand Indiaâ€™s refining and petrochemicals sector while improving efficiency and enhancing environmental performance and regulatory compliance. In 2013, the company established the Honeywell India Technology Center (HITC) in Gurugram. HITC supports Honeywell UOP's work in developing and licensing process technologies used in refining and the production of petrochemicals and renewable fuels.
