Biofuels are renewable plant or animal-based feedstock that can be blended into diesel. They are a valuable part of the energy mix as a way to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Shell Biodiesel may contain up to 5% biofuel as allowed by the Fuel Standard (Automotive Diesel) Determination 2001 and meets the requirements of the Australian National Fuels Quality Standards Act 2000 which means that it can be used in vehicles that run on conventional diesel.
The New South Wales and Queensland Governments are ensuring that biofuels are becoming widely available and has set a mandate requiring a percentage of fuel in these states contain renewables.
Shell has developed a range of fuels that are designed to assist Australian drivers reduce their carbon footprint and supports this mandate by offering Shell Biodiesel when available.
We are very pleased to announce that our AdBlue® at pump presence has significantly expanded (please see our updated site listing below) to meet the growing demands of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) equipped trucks and continue its investment in the Australian truck network.
In addition to offering AdBlue® at pump, AdBlue® is also available in 10 litre packs at more than 100 Shell Coles Express and retail sites, and is now available in bulk supply and 1000L IBCs for commercial customers.
AdBlue® is a fluid used in trucks to help them reduce their emissions. The fluid is sprayed into the exhaust of trucks (after the diesel has been combusted) and helps to convert oxides of nitrogen into harmless gas and water vapour.
The exciting news is that truck drivers will now be able to replenish their AdBlue® needs conveniently while they fill up with Diesel or have the ability for home base solutions, and can be assured of a high quality solution that meets the Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) certified ISO-22241 1-3 industry standard.
