Low Carbon Fuels
Shell Canada is committed to producing and supplying low-carbon fuels such as biodiesel and renewable diesel to help lower carbon emissions from transportation and help our customers meet their own decarbonization ambitions.
In Canada, Shell supplies renewable diesel in British Columbia, Manitoba and Quebec, while biodiesel is marketed across the country. Shell has also invested with others in the deployment of biofuels technologies in Canada with the Forge biofuel production plant and the Varennes Carbon Recycling project.
FORGE: Canadian biofuel start-up FORGE Hydrocarbons Corp is building a first-of-its-kind CAD$30 million commercial-scale, biofuel production plant in Sombra, Ontario with a capability of 7.5 million gallons of renewable fuels annually. These fuels include renewable jet fuel, diesel and naphtha from waste fats and oils which are cheaper to produce than conventional renewable diesel and require no specialized blending infrastructure.
Varennes Carbon Recycling: A waste-to-low-carbon-fuels plant in Québec, the facility will produce lower-carbon fuels and renewable chemicals products from non-recyclable waste. The plant will treat more than 200,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste and wood waste per year with an annual production of nearly 125 million litres of low carbon fuels.
