Shell plc – one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies – has inked a two-year sponsorship deal with Bitcoin Magazine. As per the deal, the company will be one of the sponsors of the next two Bitcoin Conferences.
Representatives from Shell will take the stage to discuss ways to reduce the energy costs of Bitcoin mining through the use of special cooling solutions and lubricants.
Shell Looking to Make Bitcoin Mining More Eco-Friendly
Despite being the 9th-biggest producer of greenhouse gas emissions on the planet until 2015 (according to the company itself), Shell plc is working hard to become more eco-friendly.
Last August, the company revealed it’s starting to use immersion cooling fluids in its data centers. Shell’s experience with cooling solutions inspired the company to start offering the product to the public.
As per the company, about 1% of global energy consumption is spent on data centers, which is an umbrella term for all sorts of novel technologies, including Bitcoin mining. One-third of that energy is wasted on cooling, which is something Shell can help with thanks to its immersion cooling fluids.
“Shell Immersion Cooling Fluid S5 X is designed to reduce energy costs and emissions through its high cooling efficiency, flow behavior, and excellent thermodynamic properties,” said Shell Lubricants boss Darin Gonzalez.
It’s fair to say that not many people are familiar with Shell’s immersion cooling technology, especially not those from the crypto-mining industry. However, that’s going to change once Shell presents its new products at the planet’s largest gathering of Bitcoin enthusiasts – the 2023 Bitcoin Conference.
