Schlumberger Limited launched EcoShield geopolymer cement-free system, in order to prevent up to 5 million metric tonnes of CO2 emissions yearly. Further, the cement-free technology may be used in a number of well life cycle phases, including abandonment, in harsh settings, and a variety of outdoor applications.
Shell International B.V. introduced Shell Bitumen CarbonSink, an innovative bio-component binder that keeps carbon inside of roadways rather than releasing it back into the atmosphere. Further, the technological carbon sink lowers the carbon footprints of one tonne of bitumen and one tonne of bitumen by up to 250 kg and 13 kg, respectively, of CO2 equivalent.
