Shell Polymers is building an Innovation Center on-site that will serve as a technological hub for the region and will offer a place for customers to collaborate with Shell. The center will contain leading edge analytical and product application equipment to ensure our customers have the right tools to minimize stress and create space for growth.
The facility is home to Shell’s Polyethylene Technology “Center of Expertise” organization and consists of an analytical lab and material testing lab that utilize state-of-the-art instruments. The facility also houses a large Application Hall containing commercial sized units for multi-layer LLDPE film, high-molecular weight film, pipe, injection molding, and blow molding.
The center will be the home of 60 employees broken into three specific teams: 1) laboratory and analytical staff supporting testing for the operating units as well as material testing for the Application Hall, 2) technical service team, and 3) the technology team that provides support to operating assets and projects in various phases of development.
