Biofuels:Trends and advantages
The "Biofuels: Trends and advantages of renewable energy" report explores the role that biofuels can play throughout the energy transition.
As companies across the globe make net-zero carbon commitments, strategies for lowering the carbon intensity of operations will be critical to operationalise. Biofuels will likely play a key part in this transformation.
Shell Blue Hydrogen Process
If hydrogen is to contribute to carbon neutrality, it needs to be produced on a large scale and with low emission levels. Long term, the answer is likely to be “green” hydrogen, which is produced from the electrolysis of water powered by renewable energy. However, electrolysis alone will not meet the forecast demand. It is currently expensive and there is insufficient renewable energy available to support large-scale green hydrogen production.
An alternative is blue hydrogen produced from natural gas along with CCUS. That’s why Shell Catalysts & Technologies has spent years developing the Shell Blue Hydrogen Process (SBHP). SBHP integrates Shell SGP and ADIP ULTRA technologies and offers key advantages over ATR, including a 10–25% lower levellised cost of hydrogen, a 20% lower capital expenditure, a 35% lower operating expenditure (excluding natural gas feedstock price), >99% CO₂ captured and overall process simplicity.
