Royal Dutch Shell Group .com Shell subsidiary takes the fizz out of global warming


A News item from Business Respect, Issue Number 16, dated 3 Nov 2001


Shell Chemicals Canada has announced an innovative partnership solution to some of its production of CO2 - the principal greenhouse gas.


The arrangement sees Shell selling its excess CO2 production to the french company Air Liquide for use in fizzy drinks, whilst it then buys from Air Liquide steam and electricity from that company's own cogeneration plant. Formerly, Shell simply vented the CO2 to the atmosphere.


The arrangement is seen as one of the most elegant co-benefit examples of the principle that one person's waste is another's raw material.
