About Shell Cansolv
Energy is vital to our daily lives. We need it to produce food, fuel transport, and power communication channels. By 2030, it is estimated that our world will need 30-50% more energy, water and food supplies to keep up with rising demand. Ensuring sufficient supplies of these resources, while avoiding serious climate change, are immense challenges. Shell Cansolv's technologies help companies meet these environmental and regulatory challenges.
Our capture solutions also enable energy and transformation companies to unlock previously unusable fuel sources such as sour oil, sour natural gas and high sulphur coal.
Shell Cansolv is an innovative, technology-centered company that offers its clients high efficiency capture solutions for the removal of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) from gas streams in various industrial applications.
Shell Cansolv's solutions can also be applied to both upstream and downstream oil & gas projects. Our commitment is to provide custom designed economic solutions to our clients' environmental problems.
Current and anticipated legislation for the clean up of contaminants from flue gases throughout most of the developed world advocate that industries will be required to meet increasingly strict emissions regulations. Shell Cansolv is a leader in sulphur dioxide and carbon dioxide recovery technologies, with a high-performance portfolio of reliable solutions that help to meet the most stringent product specifications and emission limits at lower costs.
The Shell Cansolv SO2 and CO2 technologies can be used across a wide variety of industries including oil & gas, power generation (including coal-fired power plants and combined cycle natural gas power plants), mining and metallurgical applications, chemicals, industrial boilers and sulphuric acid plants.
The highly adaptable technology can be added to an existing plant or incorporated in a new installation. There are 20+ units licensed worldwide. Shell Cansolv's CO2 Capture technology enables Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) which may be essential in mitigating climate change in the years to come.
Shell Cansolv has been part of the greater Shell Group since December 2008.
