Shell Expects Conventional Fuels to Stay on the Road

Fossil fuels are a finite resource, and as such the demand for renewable energy sources is increasing. However, fuel giant Shell is predicting that while vehicles that run on renewable energy will increase, conventional fuels like diesel and gasoline are going to power the majority of vehicles for the a good part of the 21st century.


Richard Tucker, Shell’s General Manager for Technology for Commercial Fuels and Lubricants, said in a press event in Germany that two thirds of the vehicles on the road in 2050 are still going to be running on conventional fuels. He also stated that an additional 2 billion vehicles will be on the road by that time, which makes improving fuel economy and cutting emissions an important task. Shell is investing in both low viscosity oil, which can improve fuel economy in trucks, and gas-to-liquid, “which is a clean-burning, low-sulfur and very low-emissions fuel when converted to diesel,” according to Overdrive Online’s website.
