Chemicals Products

Shell Chemicals has a heritage of more than 85 years. We supply over 17 million tonnes of petrochemicals per year to our customers, many of whom are leaders in their own fields.


Petrochemicals are fundamental to positive growth in economies. They are used in important products, such as plastics, rubbers, fibres, foams, coatings, adhesives, solvents and additives. And they are used in many consumer goods we see more of as economies grow, including textiles, mattresses, car components, paints, computer casings, soaps and washing detergents.

The petrochemicals industry is diverse and Shell Chemicals focuses on producing basic or ‘building-block’ chemicals, for sale in bulk to other chemicals companies or industries.
