Industry Insight - Quote 1

Shell Global Solutions and its network of technology companies within the CRI/Criterion Inc. family, which includes Criterion Catalysts & Technologies, Zeolyst International, CRI Catalyst Company and CRI Leuna (formerly known as KataLeuna), license cutting-edge technologies as well as providing consultancy to help customers:

  • upgrade the capacity and performance of existing units;
  • integrate new process units into existing refineries and petrochemical complexes;
  • incorporate advanced catalyst systems and reactor internals; and
  • build grass-roots refineries.

With every license, we can offer a process design package (or basic design package); detailed support to engineering*, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors; extended training; start-up services; differentiated technical assistance and optimisation during the first and subsequent cycles; and decision-making support. All of our license projects are managed by a dedicated, highly experienced team and draw on the years of experience that the Shell Group (“Shell”) has gained in building and operating refineries and petrochemical complexes around the world.

What sets Shell Global Solutions apart from some other licensors is the knowledge it gains from Shell’s corporate heritage as the owner and operator of large, complex industrial refining and petrochemical facilities. Our technologies have been developed and fine-tuned in response to real business challenges and reflect Shell’s many years of experience in designing, building and operating complex processing plants. This gives clients access to processes, catalysts and best practices that have taken time to evolve – clear examples of leapfrogging technology.
