Aral pilots two new lower carbon fuels in Germany

Aral is piloting two new fuels – Aral Futura Super 95 and Aral Futura Diesel. Both fuels reduce CO2 emissions compared to pure fossil fuels by at least 25%* and contain at least 30% of high-quality renewable components, including a significant share of advanced renewable components**. They are now publicly available for customers at one Aral station in Berlin and one in Düsseldorf. The first official fill of a passenger car happened today at the Berlin Holzmarktstraße site in the presence of Oliver Luksic, Parliamentary State Secretary of the Federal Department for Digital Affairs and Transport.

Patrick Wendeler, CEO of Aral AG, 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.”

“Advanced biofuels are an important technology for reducing greenhouse gases in road transport. In parallel with the ramp-up of e-mobility, they are an effective lever for significantly reducing CO2 emissions in existing internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. We very much welcome the fact that Aral is offering a standard-compliant fuel with a high share of renewable components,” said Oliver Luksic, Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister for Digital Affairs and Transport.
