Shell in Germany announced April 5 that it is expanding its offering for business customers in the mobility sector with its new Shell Renewable Diesel.


Through the use of waste and residual materials such as used cooking oil, the paraffinic fuel can achieve savings of up to 90 percent in CO2e emissions compared to conventional diesel over the entire product lifecycle and make a significant contribution to decarbonization of the transport sector.


According to Shell, the decisive factor for the market launch of the climate-friendly product was the amendment of the 10th BImSchV and the inclusion of B10 diesel fuel and XTL-type paraffinic diesel fuel by the legislature.


“This means we can now offer the innovative product to our business partners in mining, agriculture, forestry and now also in road logistics without the complicated exemptions previously required, and thus help them to reduce their CO2 footprint,” said Shell’s Dirk Abend and Sönke Kleymnann in a joint statement.


In addition to Shell GTL Fuel made from natural gas, which business customers have been able to obtain for nonroad applications in construction, agriculture and shipping from Shell-brand partners in Germany, Austria and Switzerland since 2013, this is now also available for Shell Renewable Diesel possible. In addition,


Customers who have the Shell card will soon be able to fill up with 100 percent renewable diesel at selected public Shell filling stations in Germany.


In other European countries such as the Netherlands, Belgium and in the Scandinavia region, Shell has been offering paraffinic diesel at its filling stations for some time.


Shell Renewable Diesel is obtained through the hydrogenation and isomerization of renewable raw materials and complies with the required EN15940 standard.


It can be used in new and older diesel vehicles without any investment.


Shell said its goal is to be a net-zero carbon company by 2050.


The focus of this transformation is on activities that reduce or avoid greenhouse-gas emissions.


“We are investing significantly in low- and CO2-free products and offerings such as green hydrogen, wind and solar power, biofuels and the development of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles,” Shell stated. “Our offering for sectors that are difficult to decarbonize such as construction, shipping or the transport sector includes Shell Renewable Diesel, Shell FuelSave Diesel, Shell GTL Fuel, Shell LNG (and increasingly Shell Bio-LNG) as well as Shell hydrogen and EV charging. This fuel mosaic allows us to provide our customers with tailored offers to help them drive the energy transition.”
