Introducing cleaner ways of moving around

Did you know that transport makes up?nearly 30% of the world’s energy use and?around a quarter of global CO2 emissions? That’s a lot of energy...

So, it’s no surprise that more and more people are switching to cleaner modes of transport to get around.

Shell is investing in lower-carbon options to add to the global energy mix. Everything from more electric vehicle charging points to cleaner ways of moving around like hydrogen fuel and LNG.

After all, we’ve been helping people to get from A to B for well over a century. And we’re not going to stop now.

Check out the film below to learn more about some of the steps that Shell are taking to #MakeTheFuture

Natural gas and alternative energies

Natural gas, the cleanest-burning hydrocarbon, could also play an important role in cleaner mobility.

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) in particular is emerging as fuel for ships and trucks. LNG is gas that is chilled to a liquid, which shrinks its volume 600 times, making it easier to store and ship. It is cleaner than diesel and heavy fuel oil because it produces less sulphur, particulates and nitrogen oxides, and can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from production to use.

Our gas-to-liquids (GTL) process turns natural gas into high-quality liquid products for use in fuels and lubricants. Our GTL Gasoil, for example, burns with lower sulphur dioxide and fewer nitrogen oxides and particulate emissions than conventional oil-based diesel. It can be used to power trucks, buses and taxis.

Trials with Airbus, Qatar Airways and Rolls Royce led to the creation of gas-to-liquids GTL Jet Fuel, which reduces particulate emissions.

Hydrogen and advanced biofuels have the potential to play an important role in the future fuel mix. In Germany and the USA we have refuelling stations for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles?– these vehicles produce no exhaust emissions at all. We continue to develop advanced biofuels from non-food plants at our technology centre in Houston USA. ?

In the meantime, our biofuels joint venture Raízen in Brazil is one of the world’s largest producers of low-emission ethanol made from sugar cane.

Increasing efficiency together

Shell started developing improved fuel economy formulas as early as the 1920s. We employ more than 300 scientists and engineers around the world dedicated to research and development (R&D) in lubricants and fuels for vehicles, shipping and aircraft.

To develop new fuels and engines for the future requires collaboration between energy suppliers and fuel retailers such as Shell, vehicle manufacturers, consumers, governments and city authorities. We need to work together to improve the fuel efficiency of road, air and sea transport in the future and reduce their CO2 emissions.

We already work closely with some of the biggest vehicle manufacturers including BMW, Chrysler, Daimler, Honda and Hyundai. Our collaborations have led to new engines using our advanced lubricants to reduce friction and achieve better fuel efficiency.

For the past 60 years, we have partnered with Ferrari to develop more efficient fuels and lubricants for its Formula One racing cars. These have led to Shell Helix lubricants and Shell V-Power fuels for motorists.

Inspiring others to save energy

We help drivers go further with less fuel. Our Fuel Save Driver Education Programme helps them to improve their fuel economy by up to 24%. The most efficient commercial drivers can reduce fuel consumption by as much as 30%.

Since 1985, Shell Eco-marathon has challenged students to design, build and drive the most energy-efficient cars, helping raise awareness about the future of mobility and inspire young engineers to rethink ways of using energy.

Shell in transport facts

  • Shell has been innovating to help people and goods move around the world for more than a century.
  • We own the largest branded network of retail refuelling stations in the world, with around 43,000 service stations in more than 70 countries.
  • In aviation, Shell refuels an aircraft every 12 seconds and supplies fuel at around 800 airports globally.
  • In shipping, we provide fuels and lubricants to vessels ranging from container ships to fishing boats, serving more than 600 ports around the world.
  • Our petrochemicals plants produce the raw materials that make plastic and synthetic materials, including those used to make vehicles.
  • And, we are the world's largest producer of refined bitumen that surfaces roads and creates safer infrastructure. ?
Hydrogen Fuel

Hydrogen Fuel

Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements in the universe and could play a significant role in the transition to a clean and low-carbon energy system. Shell has a growing network of hydrogen stations in Europe and in North America, where it is part of several initiatives to encourage the adoption of hydrogen in transport.

Biofuels

Biofuels

Biofuels are a renewable energy source, made from organic matter or wastes, that can play a valuable role in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Biofuels are one of the largest sources of renewable energy in use today. In the transport sector, they are blended with existing fuels such as gasoline and diesel. In the future, they can be particularly important to help decarbonise the aviation, marine and heavy-duty road transport sectors.
