Remondis and Shell agree on strategic cooperation

The two partners have initially agreed on the development of a raw materials cycle around the Cologne Chemical Park.

Energy giant Shell and waste management company Remondis signed a "memorandum of understanding," Euwid reports. They intend to link the waste collection, sorting and recycling, chemicals and energy sectors in a long-term strategic collaboration, leveraging each other's strengths. The aim of the collaboration, he said, is to meet the growing demand for more sustainable energy and chemical products. Shell Germany CEO Fabian Ziegler said, "Instead of crude oil, we want to use more hydrogen, circular waste and biomass in the future to produce alternative energy and chemical products." Remondis CEO Jürgen Ephan added that "Germany and NRW offer attractive conditions for successfully shaping the energy transition." Shell had announced its intention to operate only five refineries worldwide in the future and to convert all of them into energy and chemical parks. Shell's site in the Rhineland,where the company says technologies for the production of green hydrogen have already gone into operation,is to play a pioneering role in this. A 100-megawatt electrolysis plant and a bio-power-to-liqid plant to convert green electricity and biomass into liquid fuels such as synthetic aviation fuels and raw gasoline are reportedly at an advanced stage of planning. Shell and Remondis intend their collaboration to make an exemplary contribution to Germany's energy transition. The two companies also announced their intention to jointly intensify their efforts for climate-neutral energy, production and logistics in the future.
