BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Honeywell expands its Baton Rouge-based facility to double the capacity of its “ultra-low-global-warming-potential” solution.

The solution, Soltice® ze, is used in foam insulation, as a propellant in personal and household care projects, and in refrigeration and air conditioning application, said the company in an announcement.

“Honeywell is at the forefront for the development and introduction of next-generation technology, with the commercialization of Solstice more than a decade ago, and we continue to invest today to ensure there is ample supply to meet our customer needs for the market conversion to low-GWP solutions,” said Laura Reinhard, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Foam and Industrial Products. “The expansion of our Baton Rouge facility—and doubling the capacity of Solstice ze– will allow us to bring additional supply to market and continue to deliver low-GWP products that reduce carbon footprint and meet regulatory needs.”

In April, Honeywell announced its commitment to become carbon neutral by 2035.
