Monash Energy is a collaboration of Shell and Anglo American to jointly develop
a clean coal to liquid project in Australia’s Latrobe Valley, utilising the latest
Roll-out of these technologies – particularly coal gasification and carbon capture
and storage – is becoming critical at a time when official forecasts project a
60% increase in world primary energy demand over the next thirty years.
These same forecasts also suggest fossils fuels remain one of the primary
sources of energy, so the aggressive adoption of new and less carbon intensive
technologies is vital. Critically, the technologies chosen by Monash Energy
enable separation of a concentrated stream of CO2 that can be transported to
injection wells in deep underground geological formations for secure storage.
The Monash Energy focus on the production of liquid fuels – such as an
ultra-clean, virtually zero sulphur synthetic diesel – is also highly relevant to
the emerging debate around energy security.
