Shell is investing in a Brazilian project aimed at testing the potential of deriving renewable hydrogen from ethanol, with a pilot fueling station kicking off construction this week. The 50 million real ($10 million) scheme — part of the UK supermajor's joint venture with Brazilian biofuels player Raizen — marks another step toward implementing more lower-carbon energy technology in Brazil’s prominent biofuels sector. “The objective of this innovative project is to try to demonstrate that ethanol can be a vector to produce renewable hydrogen, leveraging the industry’s existing logistics,” said Shell Brazil CEO Cristiano Pinto da Costa. Raizen will supply the ethanol for the project.
