About Us

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

ClearShift produces ultra-pure, environmentally friendly specialty chemicals using our cutting edge GTL process, responsibly replacing legacy oil-based chemicals.

Our GTL technology converts methane, flare gas, and CO2 into non-combustible specialty chemicals, removing the associated CO2 from the air permanently.

We help companies turn their gas/CO2 into a new revenue source — converting pollution into profit, while also reducing their carbon footprint.
