SynGest Facility Will Use Honeywell System To Process Biomass

By Chemical Processing Staff

Jun 23, 2011

SynGest Inc. will process as much as 400 tons of biomass each day to produce nitrogen fertilizer that will be sold to U.S. agricultural companies and farms. The company will use Honeywell Process Solutions’ (HPS) front-end engineering support and technology for the plant’s fully integrated control system.

The plant will utilize Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System, UniSim process simulators and field instrumentation. Additionally, the proposed facility will use a pressure swing adsorption technology developed by Honeywell UOP to purify hydrogen used in the plant’s processes.

Experion is HPS’ primary process control and automation platform that helps streamline operations by integrating various subsystems throughout a facility, including process control, safety systems and instrumentation. The UOP technology will purify hydrogen processed in the plant’s two-stage gasification system.
