DES PLAINES, Ill., March 20, 2013

DES PLAINES, Ill., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE:
HON) company, announced today that its advanced adsorbent materials have
successfully been used to clean nearly 100 million gallons of
radiation-contaminated water at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in
Japan.

Honeywell's UOP IONSIV™ Selective Media adsorbents have been used by Toshiba
Corp. and Shaw Global Services LLC as part of the Simplified Active Water
Retrieve and Recovery System (SARRY), which is being used to treat wastewater
that was contaminated after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in March 2011.
Honeywell's UOP material has been used in the system since August 2011 and has
reduced cesium to below detectable levels.

"Our products were chosen for their superior ability to remove large amounts
of radioactive materials, including cesium from seawater, which is
challenging. So far, our products' performance has exceeded expectations,"
said Mike Millard, vice president and general manager of Honeywell's UOP
Catalysts, Adsorbents and Specialties business unit. "UOP is proud of the
contribution our IONSIV adsorbents have made toward reducing the radiation
risk in Japan and helping the area recover from this devastating event. We are
committed to partnering with those on-site to continue removing radioactive
contaminants from all water sources."

Honeywell's UOP IONSIV Selective Media adsorbents are crystalline materials
designed to selectively remove radioactive ions, particularly cesium and
strontium, from liquids. Previous generations of these products have been used
commercially for more than 30 years to treat radioactive waste streams in
commercial nuclear power plants, alkaline tank waste and spent fuel storage
pool water.Honeywell's UOP R9120-B adsorbent and its UOP R9160-G adsorbent
were used in the cleanup efforts at the plant. For more information on the
full line of Honeywell's UOP IONSIV Selective Media adsorbents, visit

The SARRY system, developed by Toshiba, Shaw and AVANTech, Inc., has operated
problem-free at the plant since its installation. Cleanup efforts are still
under way and IONSIV adsorbents are expected to remain in use for the next 10
years to remove cesium and strontium from various contaminated water sources
at Fukushima.

Honeywell's UOP pioneered the adsorbents industry more than 60 years ago with
the invention of the first synthetic zeolites for use as molecular sieve
adsorbents. Today, in addition to a wide range of molecular sieve and
activated alumina products, UOP offers a broad portfolio of adsorbents for the
removal of contaminants such as mercury and sulfur compounds.

UOP LLC, headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois, USA, is a leading
international supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts,
adsorbents, process plants, and consulting services to the petroleum refining,
petrochemical, and gas processing industries. UOP is a wholly-owned subsidiary
of Honeywell International Inc. and is part of Honeywell's Performance
Materials and Technologies strategic business group. For more information, go
