Under the terms of the new agreement, Sulzer Chemtech will continue to be the worldwide licensee for Shell Catalysts & Technologies’ high-capacity tray and phase separation technology. In addition to this, the companies have committed to expanding the joint development of new advanced mass transfer and separation technologies.
