BATON ROUGE - Honeywell International Inc. said Wednesday that it will invest $33 million in its Baton Rouge plant to produce a propellant for use in cleaners, insulation, warning systems, marine navigation and novelty aerosols.

The industrial conglomerate, based in Morris Township, N.J., said the investment will enable the 61-year-old factory to produce commercially Honeywell HFO-1234ze, which it said has a global warming potential well below the threshold set by European authorities.

The propellant has been approved for use in foam and aerosols by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It also is sold and used
in Europe and Japan.

Honeywell plans to begin the expansion in December and start production in 2013.

State economic development officials said the production would add 11 employees to the plant's 200-member workforce.
