About ClearShift
ClearShift produces ultra-pure, environmentally friendly fuels and specialty chemicals using a cutting-edge gas-to-liquids (GTL) process, responsibly replacing legacy oil-based fuels and chemicals. Its GTL technology converts methane, flare gas and CO2 into low carbon fuels and non-combustible carbon neutral specialty chemicals, removing the associated CO2 from the air permanently. ClearShift helps companies convert pollution into profit, while reducing their carbon footprint. The goal is for ClearShift's forthcoming facility to produce over 38 million gallons per year (230 million pounds per year) of high-grade, carbon neutral specialty chemicals. ClearShift also produces clean hydrogen, which is consumed in its non-combustion production process. For further information, visit www.goclearshift.com
