Shell serious about ethanol and other biofuels, says CEO

By NALIN VIBOONCHART THE NATION KUALA LUMPUR Published on July 9, 2011

Royal Dutch Shell is heavily focused on investing in the exploration and production of gas and biofuels in promising countries, including China and Brazil, as it foresees that these sources of energy will play an important role over the next four decades as the demand for energy, particularly from Asian countries, will grow much faster than supply.

Chief executive officer Peter Voser yesterday said in Malaysia that Shell was focusing on four areas for future energy development: natural gas, biofuels, reduction of carbon-dioxide (CO2) emission and energy-efficiency products. read more

Shell’s Green Ads Take New Tack

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

FEBRUARY 2, 2009

LONDON — Royal Dutch Shell, censured twice by Britain’s ad police for exaggerating its commitment to green issues, is hoping to avoid controversy in its latest ad campaign. It isn’t clear if it has succeeded.

The Anglo-Dutch oil giant drew fire from activist groups like Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth for past attempts to extol its environmental responsibility. It tended to boast of its investments in alternative energy with ads that spoke of the “power to create a cleaner, safer world.” read more

Energy firms threaten poor – Oxfam

Energy giants Shell and E.ON are threatening the lives of millions of poor around the world, a charity said.

Their “high-polluting policies” have been attacked in an Oxfam report ‘Forecast for Tomorrow’ that says they are contributing “to the UK pushing global emissions to dangerous levels for the world and catastrophic levels for the poor.”

The controversial Kingsnorth coal-fired power station, proposed by E.ON, attracted particular criticism, with Oxfam warning it will have the combined carbon output of 30 developing countries. read more

Shell exec speaks on carbon dioxide capture and storage

Discuss Download Photo: Hamad Saber

John Barry: We know that the C02 concentration in the atmosphere has gone up measurably in recent years. We also know that it’s not what’s happened so far that is the problem. It’s what’s going to happen over the next 100 years if we don’t start to manage the problem.

That’s John Barry with Shell. He leads one of Shell’s efforts to manage carbon dioxide emissions – thought to be changing Earth’s climate. He spoke of carbon dioxide capture and storage.

John Barry: Carbon dioxide capture and storage is one of the technologies that offers the most promise for making a difference to CO2 emissions in the short to medium term – I’m thinking 10 or 20 years. A hundred years out, maybe there will be technologies we haven’t thought of today. read more
