Smart Fuels for Nordic Drivers

The St1 and Shell retail stations offer high-quality fuel products for all kinds of vehicles

The oil industry experts at the St1 refinery in Gothenburg are dedicated to refining liquid fuels that are designed for the demanding driving conditions in the Nordic countries. All our products meet the local and European standards for traffic fuels.

Our goal is to reduce fossil CO₂ emissions in traffic step-by-step by bringing smart and more environmentally friendly fuels into the market.

All biofuels we sell fulfill EU and National sustainability criteria set by the law and are covered by officially approved sustainability schemes, such as ISCC, International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (https://www.iscc-system.org/) and National sustainability schemes (Finland, Sweden, Norway). Furthermore, they fulfill the minimum GHG reduction requirement of 50% set by the law, and are traceable.

Constant product development of conventional and advanced fuels

Focus on fuel efficiency and the reduction of emissions

Premium liquid fuels are one of the cornerstones of our strategy, and we are continuing to develop premium products for Nordic customers. It is important to introduce smart and environmentally friendly fuels that can be used in ordinary combustion engines, because they will dominate traffic until 2030 and even years after that. Some of our recently launched products include:

95 E10 Extra petrol has been launched in our St1 retail network in Finland.
The previous 95 petrol sold in the Finnish Shell network has been replaced by Shell FuelSave 95 petrol. Both new premium products reduce fuel consumption, which makes them less expensive to use.

1st Renewable fuels – 1st Bensin RE+ and 1st Diesel RE+  – now available in the St1 retail network in the Gothenburg area, offer the highest guaranteed bio content available for standard diesel and gasoline cars on the Swedish fuel market.

 

Advanced high-blend ethanol fuels

According to St1 corporate strategy, we develop and produce renewable fuel options

The advanced ethanol, which we biorefine from feedstocks outside food chain, is used as a biocomponent in petrol. It is also used in unique RE85 high-blend ethanol fuel that reduces fossil CO₂ emissions from traffic by up to 80%. RE85 is available in our Finnish retail network and it can be used in flexfuel vehicles.

Additionally, our own waste-based ethanol is used in RED95 ethanol diesel, which is used in Scania's ethanol diesel engines. RED95 reduces fossil CO₂ emissions by up to 90% and local emissions by up to 80%.

St1 plans to extend its advanced biofuels production also into renewable diesel. We are investing in a new hydrogen manufacturing unit, which will be built at the St1 Refinery in Gothenburg, Sweden. This is the first step in the series of planned investments, which will enable the St1 Refinery to start the production of renewable diesel in 2020.
