Biofuels and alternative transport fuels
The number of cars on the road is expected to triple by 2050. The world will need all the sustainable transport fuel options available to help meet this growing demand, with fewer CO2 emissions. Electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will be important in the longer term. Natural gas will also be a bigger part of the mix. But most vehicles will continue to run on petrol and diesel. We believe that blending these fuels with sustainable biofuels offers the best, commercially viable way to reduce CO2 emissions from road transport fuels over the next 20 years.

We are building our capacity in today’s biofuels and working to make them more sustainable.
Electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cells will play an increasing role in the future transport mix – but first must overcome hurdles to wide commercial use.
Compressed natural gas (CNG) is a lower-carbon transport fuel that can be used as an alternative to petrol and diesel
