STCA is Shell’s technology hub with the oldest history. Starting from a small laboratory with a staff of nine in 1914, STCA today houses around 1,300 people in labs and offices in a spacious yet energy-efficient building.

Research at STCA has created: technology that turns natural gas into liquids for cleaner-burning transport fuel and other products; sulphur-rich concrete that makes for stronger, more environmentally friendly roads; and more efficient chemical processes for synthesising materials for everyday items – from pillows to bottles.
