Shell Breaks Ground on Plastic Waste-Derived Oil Facility in Singapore

By Fabiana Negrin Ochoa

Royal Dutch Shell PLC on Tuesday broke ground on a new project in Singapore to make an oil product from plastic waste otherwise destined for landfills.

The treated pyrolysis oil will be used to produce so-called circular chemicals–chemicals used in products intended to be reused or repurposed with minimal waste, the oil major said.

Shell unit Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd. will process the waste and didn’t provide financial details of the investment.

Once the pyrolysis oil upgrader unit starts production in 2023, it will be the largest in Asia, Shell said. It will have a capacity of 50,000 tons a year and is the company’s first such unit.

In September, Shell Ventures BV formed a partnership with BlueAlp Holding to develop the latter’s plastic waste-to-chemical feedstock technology.
