Inside refinery technology licensing

Sulphur Technology Platform

Shell Global Solutions’ Sulphur Technology Platform helps refiners manage increasing sulphur content while meeting product specifications and emissions regulations.

Catalytic dewaxing

Catalytic dewaxing is used to improve cold flow properties of diesel fuels by selective hydroisomerization and hydrocracking of paraffins.

Maximum diesel hydrocracking

Shell Global Solutions provides pioneering hydrocracking configurations to help refiners respond cost effectively to growing demand for ultra-low-sulphur diesel

Dual-service hydrocracking

High-quality middle distillate products from partial conversion of heavy oil fractions and difficult feedstocks.


Hydrotreating is an established refinery process for reducing sulphur, nitrogen and aromatics while enhancing cetane number, density and smoke point.
