Subject case study
Shell has the ambition to become a Net Zero Energy and Chemicals company by 2050. To do so, Shell is working on facilities that can sustainably and affordably provide energy to customers. A great example is the HEFA biofuels facility in Rotterdam, where biobased oils are transformed into diesel for heavy road transport. A large challenge in making making chemical processes sustainable is in decarbonizing their utilities, such as steam, and auxiliary systems. In this case study, you will take a deep dive in how to energize the supplementary process related systems of Shells first, large scale biofuels facility, the Rotterdam HEFA plant.
