Future of SMDS depends on three areas

Dateline 2018-08-29, Borneo Post:

The future of Shell Middle Distillate Synthesis (SMDS) depends on three areas, says Shell Malaysia chairman Datuk Iain Lo.

One, to remain competitive SMDS must continued its technology development programme.

“We have an active programme in our research labs in Amsterdam and here in Bintulu SMDS to ensure that SMDS can compete with a new generation of coal to liquids plant from China,” he said during the SMDS 25th anniversary gala dinner here on Monday.

Secondly, in terms of product development, SMDS must find more innovative and high value uses for its unique products.

“We rely on our own research and development in the US, our distributors and customers and also learning institutions,” Lo added. “A good example is our collaboration with UNIMAS, which has helped us develop an application in 3D printing for Sarawax.”
