Shell Releases Carbon Neutral 100LL Avgas

Regular 100LL, But With Support for Shell's Green Projects

Shell's Aviation brand has delivered the first truckload of its new aviation fuel product, Carbon Neutral 100LL Avgas. Shipped to large distributor Avfuel, Shell hopes it will be the first of many, soon to be available at select FBO sites across the U.S. 

Avfuel purchased the 7,000-gallon payload with carbon credits, offsetting 75 metric tons of CO2 emissions. Carbon neutrality as a marketing tool is not new to aviation, being used in larger, more expensive business aviation passenger-focused aviation. Environmental bragging rights, and ESG score improvements make carbon credits a useful tool to those looking to decrease their ecological impact where operational green alternatives are scarce. 

Shell's carbon neutral fuel brings that same dynamic to general aviation's piston-powered aircraft, which in general are rarely included in environmental initiatives. Shell treats their "Carbon Neutral 100 LL Avgas" as a product unto itself, but it hardly differs from garden variety avgas, being "traditional 100LL avgas that Shell delivers bundled with carbon credits."

“Avfuel is proud to collaborate with Shell to help further advance aviation’s sustainability goals,” said Joel Hirst, Avfuel vice president of sales. “By supplying avgas that is already offset with carbon credits — making for a carbon-neutral avgas option—we can make the concept of net-zero more accessible for the aviation community.”
