Honeywell is building a technology center in Gurgaon, India, to expand its global research capabilities in refining, petrochemical, and other technologies to better serve customers in the region. The company will invest $34 million to establish the 400,000-ft² center at an existing Honeywell-owned property. The center will primarily house pilot plants for developing and demonstrating refining and petrochemical process technology developed by UOP, a Honeywell subsidiary that is part of Honeywell’s Specialty Materials business group. The center will also include labs for process and applications development for other Specialty Materials technology areas, including fluorine products and nylon materials. The center is expected to employ 100 within five years.
