Shell has been developing gasification technology since 1956. The Shell Coal Gasification Process can monetize refinery residues and heavy oils to make a truly ‘bottomless refinery’.
The Shell Coal Gasification process is available in two line-ups, and can handle a variety of feeds, from high- to low-quality coal, even biomass. Customers use the syngas to generate power or as feedstock to further chemical processes such as fertilizer. One of the key advantages of gasification is that CO2 can be captured for storage.
