Shell to add bio-power-to-liquid plant at Rhineland Refinery

March 1, 2021 |

In Germany, Shell would like to manufacture sustainable aviation fuels in the Wesseling section of the Rhineland Refinery. To this end, the company wants to set up a first commercial Bio-PTL (Power-to-Liquid) plant. The synthetically produced kerosene is intended to help reduce airline CO 2 footprint. In addition, the capacity of the PEM hydrogen electrolysis system, which Shell is currently completing in the Wesseling section together with ITM Power, is to be increased tenfold from the current 10 megawatts to 100 megawatts. Shell and its partners are applying for funding from the EU and Germany for both projects. A final investment decision for both projects is still pending.
