Alpha olefins/detergent alcohols
Imagine life today without packaging, detergents, sun creams or lubricants. Products would not be as fresh and crisp, clothes wouldn't be as clean, our skin wouldn't be protected and our cars would under-perform. Alpha olefins, internal olefins and detergent alcohols help to provide all of these benefits.

NEODENE* linear alpha and internal olefins form an integral part of polyethylene packaging to synthetic lubricants and drilling fluids.
NEODOL* alcohols and ethoxylates are precursor molecules for surfactants.
LINEVOL plasticiser alcohols at manufacturing locations in the USA and UK. They are used as intermediates to produce high quality plasticisers.
NEOFLO fluids act as base stocks in the synthetic drilling fluids used in exploration and production drilling operations.
Shell chemicals companies are among the world's largest producers and suppliers of alcohols and alcohol ethoxylates.
NEODOL LM* ethoxylates are produced from C12-C16 alcohols derived from oleochemical processes.
Shell Chemicals offers a range of ENORDET surfactants for enhanced oil recovery.
