“Given the zero rating of biodiesel under the carbon pricing scheme, using a B20 fuel in their trucks can help affected customers significantly improve their bottom line,” said Andrew Smith, a vice president for Shell’s downstream business.
Smith added that at a recent workshop, more than 50% of Shell’s commercial customers in Australia said they would consider B20 for their fleets for either taxation or environmental reasons.
Shell's B20 is made up of diesel fuel and a bio-component produced from vegetable oils or animal fats, the company said.
Shell plans to expand its B20 availability further as it continues to work with customers to offer fuels and lubricants solutions that help them reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) footprint, it added.
