Ask Swee Chen

Entrusted by you, Shell Singapore takes our responsibility seriously.     

Each day, we attempt to minimise water use at the Pulau Bukom Manufacturing Site. We take sea water, heat it to get low-pressure steam, condense it into salt-free water and use it in the refinery’s boilers to power the plant. In this way, 10,000 cubic metres of sea water – enough to fill four Olympic-size swimming pools – is processed every day. This saves piping in the equivalent quantity of fresh water.

At Shell Jurong Island, the mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) plant, our petrochemicals complex, uses proprietary OMEGA technology to make MEG – a raw material used in products such as polyester and anti-freeze. We use 20% less steam and generate around 30% less waste water compared to conventional processes.

There are many things we do as a responsible member of the community. Want to find out more? Ask me a question. Every month, I will share the most interesting question, and my reply, with you. Ask me below.
