Why Gasification?

Gasification is a clean and reliable way to create synthesis gas (syngas) from low-value feedstocks to produce high-value products and power.

Residue Gasification

Shell’s Gasification Process, when integrated with upgrading and treating technologies, converts a wide range of low-value refinery residues and asphaltenes into syngas.

Products and applications

The Shell Coal Gasification process can handle a variety of feeds, from high- to low-quality coal, even biomass.
