BP pilots two new lower carbon fuels in Germany

BP brand Aral is piloting two new fuels that could reduce CO2 emissions compared to pure fossil fuels by at least 25 per cent and contain at least 30 per cent high-quality renewable components.

The fuels, Aral Futura Super 95 and Aral Futura Diesel, are already publicly available for customers at one Aral station in Berlin and one in Düsseldorf.

Patrick Wendeler, CEO of Aral, said: "We believe that petrol and diesel fuels that save CO2 emissions can play an important role in the energy transition of transport – even as it continues to broader vehicle electrification and the diversification of drives such as bio-LNG, bio-CNG and hydrogen in heavy-duty transport. With our new fuels, we demonstrate what is already possible within the existing fuels standards today.”

It is predicted that two thirds of transportation will remain ICE powered in 2030, and within the EU there is a need for distributors of petrol and diesel fuels to reduce greenhouse gas. The Aral Futura fuels demonstrate that a CO2 reduction of at least a quarter compared to pure fossil fuels is technically possible by blending in renewable components and still meets the current standards DIN EN 590 (diesel) and DIN EN 228 (petrol). Existing vehicles can make its contribution to achieving the climate targets – today as well as in 2030 – through the fuel itself. Aral Futura fuels offer customers driving a vehicle with an internal combustion engine (conventional or hybrid) an option beyond current E10 petrol or B7 diesel fuel to play a part in contributing to the energy transition today – without any modification to their vehicle, provided it can run on E10 or B7 fuel.
