Growing concerns over the impact of air pollution on public health and the environment means that reducing emissions from diesel machinery is becoming an important consideration for farmers.

Exclusively available in the UK from Certas Energy, Shell GTL Fuel is a cleaner burning alternative to diesel that is approved by many OEMs. As a drop-in fuel that does not require modifications to existing infrastructure or equipment, Shell GTL Fuel offers an immediate solution to cut emissions from farming machinery that cannot otherwise be switched to other energy sources.

Shell GTL Fuel is proven to reduce levels of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter to immediately improve local air quality, and offers many additional benefits:

  • Safer and healthier working environment: The fuel produces less odour, no smoke and quieter engine noise than conventional diesel, creating a healthier and more pleasant environment for workers spending long days operating machinery.
  • Winter grade properties: Shell GTL Fuel has excellent low temperature performance with improved cold start - handy in those colder months.
  • Store safely for longer: With its reduced risk of bio-contamination resulting in longer life, Shell GTL Fuel has improved storage stability - ideal for harvest and during summer.
  • Free of toxins and eco-friendly: Free of unwanted components such as sulphur, metals, and aromatics Shell GTL Fuel is non-toxic, biodegradable and less harmful to the environment.

Last year, Northfield Farms adopted Shell GTL Fuel to power a cleaner and more productive harvest. Assistant Farm Manager, George Palmer, commented:

"After using Shell GTL Fuel supplied by Certas Energy in a variety of Fendt, New Holland and JCB tractors, we noticed the difference immediately. We previously had problems with water contamination in the tractor fuel tanks but the improved storage and stability of Shell GTL have rectified these issues. We also reduced our AdBlue usage. The fact we didn’t have to make any changes to our engines or tanks was a huge advantage and it’s great to know that we’re reducing our impact on the environment without affecting productivity.”
