Approved by most major Original Engine Manufacturers (OEMs)

what is GTL?

GTL (Gas-to-Liquid) fuel is a liquid fuel created from natural gas. GTL is a clean burning liquid fuel alternative to conventional fossil Diesel.

This fuel provides lower pollutant emissions, cleaner air and reduces risk to human health. It can be used in most Diesel applications, from non road mobile machinery to road vehicles. GTL meets EN15940 for paraffinic diesel fuels

Improve Local Air Quality

N

Immediate and direct reduction of local emissions & regulated pollutants: Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), Particulate Matter (PM), Carbon monoxide (CO) and Hydrocarbons (HC).

N

NOx emissions can be reduced by up to 37%.

N

PM emissions can be reduced by up to 50%.

N

For on-road heavy duty vehicles such as buses, transport trucks and utility vehicles, GTL has shown to reduce NOx by 5-37% and PM by 10-38%.

REDUCE RISK TO HUMAN HEALTH

N

Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and Particulate matter (PM) emissions, from Diesel engines and applications, pose an immediate and serious risk to human health.

N

Provides significantly lower risk to human health than burning Diesel.

N

The flashpoint is higher than conventional Diesel; improving safety, handling and storage. Flash point is used to assess the potential fire hazards of fuel.

INTERCHANGEABLE WITH DIESEL

N

Completely interchangeable with conventional fossil Diesel.

N

Can be blended at any percentage.

N

No changes required to the engine or operational infrastructure.

N

No changes required to the engine or operational infrastructure.

N

Switch between GTL and Diesel without concern about maintenance requirements or tank cleaning implications.

SUPERIOR RELIABILITY

N

GTL is a fundamentally different fuel to conventional Diesel (see below) and provides you with superior reliability.

N

Good to go when you require it; due to better starting, storage and low temperature performance.

N

Superior starting performance due to better ignition quality.

N

Superior stability in storage, partly due to their being no Bio content.

DEPENDABLE COLD WEATHER PERFORMANCE

N

Superior low temperature performance in application and storage; due to the cold flow properties and ignition quality.

N

Extremely low risk of the free flow of GTL being impeded by the blocking of fuel lines and filters by particles of wax, that have precipitated out of the fuel, at low temperatures.

N

Compliant with upcoming Sulphur regulation, Medium Combustion Plant Directive, prohibiting the use of fuels of over 1% Sulphur.

N

Superior start-up performance in low temperatures due to these cold flow properties and the higher Cetane number.

REDUCE NOISE POLLUTION

N

Research shows that GTL can reduce combustion noise level by 1-4 dB with GTL’s more uniform combustion.

N

The high Cetane number of the fuel shortens ignition delay, reducing knock intensity and combustion noise in both heavy-duty and light-duty engines.

PROVEN AND ACCEPTED

N

Many Original Engine Manufacturers (OEMs) have approved EN15940 GTL and, specifically, GTL in their handbooks.

N

DAF, Scania, Caterpillar, Cummins, John Deere, MAN and many others approve of GTL.

N

GTL is not a new fuel. Global supply and demand for Shell GTL has been doubling each year since 2012.

N

Certas Energy, Prema Energy’s GTL supply partner, have been supplying GTL for the last 9 years. Certas Energy case studies are available on request.
