Our Commitment to Cleaner Air

26 - 06 - 2018

Kelly Formwork are very proud to announce they have signed an agreement with Certas Energy to provide the cleaner GTL fuel in direct replacement for standard crude diesel. All machinery, plant and vehicles will be using the new GTL fuel by the end of July 2018. 

Shell is a pioneer of Gas-To-Liquids (GTL) technologywhich manufactures hydrocarbon products fromnatural gas using the Fischer-Tropsch process. This process breaks down gas molecules andreassembles them into larger uniform moleculesin a carefully controlled manner. One of the products is Shell GTL Fuel, an alternative fuel that is cleaner-burning compared to standard diesel.

Because this manufacturing process produces more consistent and uniform molecules compared to conventional crude oil refining, GTL Fuel hasimproved combustion properties inside standard diesel engines and so helps reduce emissions of airpollutants. It is also free of unwanted components such as sulphur, metals, and aromatics, makingit non-toxic and therefore less harmful to the environment.

We’re proud to be one of the first subcontractors in the UK construction industry to use the alternative Shell GTL Fuel. This shows our commitment towards making a difference and leading the way forward for delivering a sustainable future.
