Shell Chemicals to produce polycarbonate

January 13, 2020 / Jessica Casey

Shell has recently announced it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CNOOC Oil & Petrochemicals Co. Ltd to explore its first commercial-scale polycarbonate (PC) production unit, which would be located at the CNOOC and Shell Petrochemical Co. (CSPC) joint-venture chemicals complex in Huizhou, China. As an interim step, Shell has started constructing a PC development unit at its Jurong Island chemicals plant in Singapore. An expanded and differentiated product range is a key part of Shell’s growth strategy for its chemicals business. PC is a transparent and impact-resistant engineering polymer, and is used to make vehicle headlights, LED spotlights, UV-blocking windows and spectacles.
