Shell Global Solutions International B.V. (Shell) and Wison Engineering Ltd. (Wison) announced their agreement to jointly develop a new, low-cost “hybrid” gasification technology demonstration plant in China, to collaborate in the technology’s future design and marketing, and to extend future cooperation to other coal gasification technologies.

This co-operation plays on Shell’s expertise in gasification and energy technologies, as well as Wison’s strong experience in project design and engineering.

The hybrid gasifiers promise to further expand the market for syngas – the main product of the gasification process – into the chemicals, hydrogen and fertilizer industries.
