Shell opens technology hub in Bangalore where IH2 technology is under development

April 11, 2017 |

In India, Shell opened a new major technology hub in Bangalore – a 52 acre, custom built technology center – that can house up to 1,500 experts, who would collaboratively work on worldwide innovative energy projects.

Commenting on the opening of Shell Technology Centre Bangalore, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan said “India has an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the world’s incremental energy needs in the years ahead. Shell is developing a waste to fuel technology called IH2 at the Technology Centre in Bengaluru that takes only a few minutes to achieve what nature requires a million years to do. This IH2 technology can be one of the game changers that can make my country a net exporter of energy. 1500 young scientists of Indian origin who will work at the Shell Technology Centre Bengaluru are India’s contribution to meeting the world’s energy requirement”.

The Bangalore Shell Technology Centre is one of the three main technology hubs in Shell’s global network of R&D centres, with the other two located in the Netherlands and the USA. The new centre houses a variety of technical experts, laboratories and technology demonstration units. It is home to a wide spectrum of technical disciplines and has specific expertise in fields such as liquefied natural gas, subsurface modelling, data analysis, engineering design, bitumen, distillation, water technology and enhanced computational research. The centre is also helping pioneer efforts – using its IH2 (waste to fuel) technology – to turn forestry, agricultural and municipal waste into transportation fuels, with a new demonstration plant being built at the site.
