Shell Plc has recently announced the availability of Shell Renewable Diesel at 75 of its stations in Los Angeles. This move is part of Shell's commitment to providing low-carbon, environmentally friendly fuel options. With a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of up to 65% compared to conventional diesel, Shell Renewable Diesel is a sustainable alternative that can be used in any diesel engine.
Cleaner-Burning Fuel with Enhanced Combustion
Renewable Diesel (RD) offered by Shell is known for its cleaner-burning properties. It boasts a cetane rating of at least 70, delivering a more complete combustion in diesel engines. In contrast, conventional diesel has a cetane rating of 53. The higher cetane rating of RD ensures improved performance and efficiency.
Two Blends for Maximum Sustainability
Shell offers two blends of Shell Renewable Diesel: R95B5 and R99.9. R95B5 consists of 95% renewable diesel and 5% biodiesel, while R99.9 is composed of 99.9% renewable diesel. Both blends provide customers with a renewable fuel product that is 99.9% sustainable, contributing to a cleaner environment.
Availability and Future Plans
Shell provides a list of stations where Shell Renewable Diesel is available on its website. For more details about the rollout of this renewable diesel program, including timing and additional locations, inquiries can be made through the provided channels.
A Growing Trend in the Industry
Chevron U.S.A. Inc. and Phillips 66 Co. have already been offering renewable diesel at various California stations for several years. Shell's recent supply agreement with Penske Truck Leasing Co. demonstrates the company's dedication to expanding the use of renewable diesel beyond California.
