Performance Materials and Technologies in India 
Text Size:  

Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies (PMT) has been a leader in developing process technologies in India for more than eight decades for the oil and gas sector, and a pioneer in automation control and instrumentation solutions. Honeywell UOP technologies enable Indian refiners efficiently produce gasoline, diesel, petrochemicals, and renewable fuels. Advanced Materials business manufactures high-performance products, including refrigerants with low global warming potential.


The business is aligned to address India’s energy needs, safety concerns, environmental and energy-efficiency issues. Honeywell PMT’s association with India dates back to the early 1930s, when UOP entered India and licensed the Dubbs thermal cracking process to produce gasoline at the Digboi refinery in Assam. Since then, UOP technologies have played a significant role in the growth of the Indian refining and petrochemical industry. Today, Honeywell PMT has more than 500 employees in India, is headquartered in Gurgaon, Haryana, and has a dedicated technology development facility – Honeywell India Technology Center (HITC) – catering to the region. Each of PMT’s three businesses is present in India.
