Honeywell Appoints Rebecca Liebert as President and CEO of Honeywell UOP

Honeywell has announced the appointment of Rebecca Liebert as president and CEO of Honeywell UOP. Having previously served as vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOPâ s Catalysts, Adsorbents and Specialties business, Liebert will lead the growth of the company across global markets, including the key Middle East region. Honeywell UOP has been serving customers in the Middle East for more than 60 years. During this time, the company has played a key role in the growth of the regionâ s oil and gas industry, supporting its customers in the development of the regionâ s most advanced refineries and petrochemical plants. Liebert succeeds Rajeev Gautam, who had led Honeywell UOP since 2009, and who now serves as president and CEO of the Performance Materials and Technologies division of Honeywell. Liebert joined Honeywell in 2006 as leader of Honeywell Electronic Materials, where she led the business into new markets, diversified the product portfolio, and drove new product development, steering the business through an industry downturn and positioning it for a strong recovery. She joined Honeywell UOP in 2012, serving as vice president of its Gas Processing and Hydrogen business.

Honeywell UOP Opens New Catalyst Production Line at Shreveport, La. Facility

Honeywell UOP opened a new production line at its catalyst manufacturing facility in Shreveport, La.

The new production line will manufacture catalysts for hydroprocessing, which removes impurities from fractionated crude oil and also makes transportation fuels.

Honeywell UOP Announces New Production Capacity in China to Support Breakthrough Coal-To-Plastics Technology

Honeywell announced that its Honeywell UOP business broke ground on a new manufacturing capacity outside Shanghai to produce materials used to convert methanol from coal into feedstocks for making plastics, a significant milestone to enable China to meet the growing demand for plastics. When it enters production in 2017, the catalyst production line in Zhangjiagang City in Jiangsu Province will produce catalysts used in Honeywell UOP's Advanced Methanol-to-Olefins (MTO) process technology. Honeywell UOP developed the MTO process to convert methanol, which can readily be produced from coal or natural gas, into the olefins ethylene and propylene that are the primary chemicals used to manufacture plastics. The heart of the MTO process is a proprietary catalyst that facilitates the conversion of methanol into olefins.
