Current and anticipated legislation for the removal of contaminants from flue gases throughout most of the developed world indicate that industries will be required to meet increasingly strict emissions regulations. Shell Cansolv is a leader in sulphur dioxide and carbon dioxide recovery technologies, with a high-performance portfolio of reliable solutions that help to meet the most stringent product specifications and emission limits at lower costs.

The Shell Cansolv SO2 and CO2 technologies can be used across a wide variety of industries including oil & gas, power generation (including coal-fired power plants and combined cycle natural gas power plants), mining and metallurgical applications, chemicals, industrial boilers and sulphuric acid plants.

Shell Cansolv's solutions can also be applied to both upstream and downstream oil & gas projects. These capture solutions enable energy companies to unlock previously unusable fuel sources such as sour oil, sour natural gas and high sulphur coal.

As Shell Cansolv's processes are regenerable, captured solvents are reused and as a result, operating costs are kept down. The pure CO2 and SO2 captured avoid landfill and legacy environmental issues and can be sold or reused as marketable by-products. The highly adaptable technology can be added to an existing plant or incorporated in a new installation.

Shell Cansolv's CO2 capture technology enables Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) which may be essential in mitigating climate change in the years to come.
