Honeywell begins full-scale production of R1234ze

Honeywell has announced it has started full-scale commercial production of R1234ze.

The refrigerant, marketed by Honeywell under its Solstice line, is being produced at the Honeywell Fluorine Products facility in Baton Rouge, La.

“Honeywell’s Baton Rouge production facility is ready to serve customers around the world with this innovative material, which has an ultra-low GWP of less than 1,” said Ken Gayer, vice president and general manager of Honeywell’s Fluorine Products business.

“We are seeing increasing demand for our entire Solstice line of low GWP materials, and this new product has already been adopted by a range of customers globally.”

Honeywell’s Baton Rouge facility was built in 1945 and continues to serve as one of Honeywell’s main manufacturing sites for its Performance Materials and Technologies business. The site employs more than 200 people.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said, “Honeywell helps support hundreds of jobs in our state, and we’re proud the company is expanding in Baton Rouge with a brand new product line.

This project is a good example of how Louisiana’s outstanding business climate is convincing companies like Honeywell to reinvest in our state, retain great existing jobs and create additional new career opportunities for our people.”
