Shell GTL Fuel - Helping to improve local air quality
With global demand for energy growing, urban authorities and public transport operators are looking for immediate solutions to tackle air pollution in their cities.
Shell GTL (Gas to Liquid) Fuel is our innovative fuel that can help you reduce the local emissions of your fleet. Because it has a high cetane number and burns more cleanly, Shell GTL Fuel produces fewer nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter (PM) than conventional diesel.
What’s more, Shell GTL Fuel can be used without modifications in your existing fleet, in new as well as older diesel vehicles, which can help you start to reduce your local emissions immediately.
Key benefits of Shell GTL Fuel:
- Helps reduce local emissions (NOx, SOx, PM/soot);
- Easy to integrate in new as well as older heavy-duty vehicles;
- Easy switchover from diesel fuel and no infrastructure investment required; and
- Can help reduce engine noise*.
* Applicable in certain types of engines under certain driving conditions.
Shell LNG - Tomorrow's fuel today
LNG is liquefied natural gas, a clear, colourless, non-toxic liquid that forms when natural gas is cooled to around -160ºC. This shrinks the volume of the gas 600 times, making it easier to store and transport.
Powering trucks - Shipping has long used natural gas, cooled to a liquid, as a cleaner fuel. Now transport and other industries are stepping up interest in liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a solution to meet their fuel needs.
LNG for the Long-Haul - Given the growing need for low-emissions transportation fuels, Shell LNG can be an attractive solution for transport operators.
