About Us

Clean products. Fresh thinking.
Paving the way to a more sustainable future.

ClearShift produces ultra-pure, carbon neutral specialty chemicals using our cutting edge GTL process, responsibly replacing legacy oil-based fuels and chemicals.

Our GTL technology converts methane, Renewable Natural Gas, and man-made CO2 into fuels and non-combustible specialty chemicals, removing the associated CO2 from the air permanently.

Arriving in the Gulf Coast soon, our next generation 5,000 Barrel Per Day plants will produce carbon neutral specialty chemicals and low carbon fuels.
