Honeywell builds a green factory, committed to a sustainable future



May 30, 2024

Under the “dual carbon” strategy, green manufacturing is an important task to achieve industrial transformation and is in line with the global trend of green development. Green factories, as the core supporting unit of green manufacturing, play a crucial role in promoting low-carbon development for enterprises. The 14th Five Year Plan for Industrial Green Development proposes to strengthen the benchmarking of green manufacturing, aiming to guide enterprises to build “green factories” in accordance with the principles of “factory intensification, harmless raw materials, clean production, waste resource utilization, and low-carbon energy”, and select advanced cases as industry benchmarks.

As a long-term practitioner and enabler of sustainable development, approximately 60% of Honeywell’s new product development is based on improving customer environmental performance and social benefits. In China, more than half of the products manufactured by Honeywell come from national or provincial “green factories”. At present, Honeywell is orderly promoting green factory certification for multiple factories and looks forward to working with Chinese partners to promote sustainable development in many industries, helping to achieve a more low-carbon, efficient, safe, and healthy sustainable future.

Energy and Sustainable Technology Group | Zhangjiagang Factory

The factory was completed and put into operation in 2014, located in the Yangtze River International Chemical Industry Park in Zhangjiagang Free Trade Zone, Jiangsu Province.

During the construction phase of the factory, not only was zero discharge of phosphorus containing industrial wastewater achieved, but also the comprehensive utilization of general industrial solid waste was promoted. The factory has carried out carbon footprint certification for its main products, established multiple ISO management systems, and carried out over 20 sustainable development projects related to production materials, equipment, and emission recycling. The factory has optimized its production processes to achieve cost reduction, efficiency improvement, energy conservation, and consumption reduction.

The factory has advanced catalyst and adsorbent production lines, including Honeywell UOP Oleflex products ™ Propane dehydrogenation process and continuous catalytic reforming CCR platform for producing high octane gasoline ™ Catalysts for the process, UOP methanol to olefin (MTO) catalysts, and molecular sieve adsorbents for applications such as refining, petrochemicals, and natural gas treatment.

Intelligent Industrial Technology Group | Nanjing Factory

Honeywell Intelligent Industrial Technology Group Nanjing Factory was established in 2007 and is located in the Jiangning High tech Park in Nanjing. After more than ten years of development, it has now become a sensor and IoT solution center that integrates independent research and development, production, and process improvement. The factory is Honeywell’s largest sensor manufacturing base in China, capable of producing 300 million sensors annually.

Since its operation, the factory has been committed to energy conservation and emission reduction, including promoting the construction of energy management systems, real-time monitoring of key equipment operation status, fine inspection and analysis of high energy consuming equipment, and the introduction of energy-saving new technologies to upgrade and transform old equipment. At the same time, we will improve the utilization of resources and energy, develop green production processes, reduce the emissions of toxic and harmful substances and pollutants in the production and use processes, and continue to carry out greenhouse gas emission verification work, and carry out carbon footprint certification for our products.

The sensors and other products produced by this factory are commonly used in industries such as industry, the Internet of Things, medical equipment, and engineering machinery. They are also widely used in the Chinese new energy vehicle market, helping to improve battery safety and optimize mileage estimation. Taking thermal runaway sensors as an example, Honeywell launched related products in 2020, which are now widely used in over a million new energy vehicles.

Intelligent Industrial Technology Group | Suzhou Factory

Honeywell Intelligent Industrial Technology Group Suzhou Factory was established in 1999 and is located in Suzhou Industrial Park.

The factory has advanced process flow, stable quality system and lean manufacturing mode, excellent management team and safety and environmental management system. It has always adhered to a strong environmental awareness and green development concept, committed to promoting the green transformation and upgrading of industrial manufacturing, and helping enterprises, society, and the environment achieve sustainable development together.

The factory mainly produces automatic recognition and data collection products, including barcode scanners, barcode label printers, mobile data terminals, and other products. Commonly used in industrial manufacturing, logistics, warehousing, healthcare, e-commerce, retailers and other fields, to help improve efficiency in various industries. The products include Xenon Power (1950/1952 series), EDA52 mobile computer, PX240/PD45 series industrial grade label printer, N6803 QR code scanning engine, etc.

Intelligent Building Technology Group | Xi’an Factory

The Xi’an Factory of Intelligent Building Technology Group (Xi’an Shengsaier Electronics Co., Ltd.) was established in 1994 and is one of the first joint ventures established by Honeywell in China.

Factories promote the green transformation and upgrading of industrial manufacturing through land intensification, harmless raw materials, clean production, waste resource utilization, and low-carbon energy. In the field of energy low-carbon, the Xi’an factory has promoted more than 30 sustainable improvement projects, including solar photovoltaic, reclaimed water reuse, air compressor waste heat recovery, reflux furnace frequency upgrade and frequency conversion, and the use of energy management platforms.

The Xi’an factory obtained the

Shaanxi Provincial “Green Factory” Title
