Case – Shell

In this Case you are part of a team that is evaluating a portfolio of projects related to the transformation of a national Shell refinery to an Energy & Chemicals Park, i.e. diversifying the product portfolio and decarbonizing the production process of the facility.

During the case, you are going to decide on the best way to decarbonize the heat production process on a new to-be-built biofuels plant. The heat production process is a vital aspect of (bio)refining that is currently still responsible for a significant portion of the scope 1 & 2 CO2 emissions of the to-be-built facility. The refinery manager has indicated that the facility should remain profitable during the transformation, as the ongoing transition is a marathon rather than a sprint. At the same time, CO2 prices rise, and the local public become increasingly scrutinizing when it comes to emissions of the refinery. Ensure to take all stakeholders in consideration for your decision as a team!
