GTL – Lowering Emissions

Gas to Liquid (GTL) fuel is a very quick and effective way of reducing harmful diesel emissions. Reducing NOx, PMs, sulphates and aromatics and allowing anyone working around diesel plant to breathe easier.

Classified as a “drop in” diesel there are no requirements for engine modifications, additional site space or infrastructure. As a diesel it also presents a whole site solution to reduce emissions.

Shell GTL is currently being used across Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and France with engines of all sizes and ages. Working with the Euro VI engines there is a notable reduction in engine re-gens – especially useful for plant running intermittently and at low speed.

Introducing GTL fuel on site reduced soot and diesel smells overnight and reduced noise from the generators by 10dB (which is higher than the estimated 5dB set by Shell). The engines themselves are showing increased performance with less fuel being used.

The fuel is non-toxic and testing has shown that no trace could be found in soil after 51 days, classifying it as readily biodegradable.

Shell can also offer carbon offsetting for GTL usage.
