What is Shell GTL Fuel?
Shell GTL Fuel is an alternative fuel to diesel, manufactured from natural gas using the Fischer-Tropsch process. This process breaks down gas molecules and reassembles them into larger uniform molecules in a carefully controlled manner.
Shell GTL Fuel is part of the family of fuels called “paraffinic fuels” which have a formal specification EN 15940 under the European Standardisation body CEN. This new specification paves the way for legislators and manufacturers to specifically refer to these alternative fuels in legislation and handbooks.
