Shell Malaysia launches new ‘Carbon Neutral’ engine oils, from RM280

Shell Malaysia has just launched its new range of carbon-neutral engine oils that includes the Shell Helix Power 0W-40, Shell Helix Power 5W-40, and Shell Helix Protect 0W-30. The new engine oil is the world’s first carbon neutral lubricant made from natural gas and retails at RM280 for the four-litre pack.

With an ambition to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, the launch of the new carbon neutral engine oil is a testament to one of the company’s many initiatives to help reduce carbon emissions together with its customers.

Making the new carbon-neutral engine oil sustainable is its 99.5% pure base oil from natural gas. The engine oil bottle is also partly (30%) made from recycled plastics, further reducing the product’s environmental impact.

Shell’s global portfolio of nature-based carbon credits will compensate CO2 emissions from the entire lifecycle of these products, including the raw materials, packaging, production, distribution, customer use, and product end-of-life. Shell also works with projects around the world that help reduce CO2 emissions, while improving the lives of local communities and protecting biodiversity.

“Increasingly, we will work on nature-based solutions to deliver high-quality carbon credits which can be used to compensate the emissions generated when a customer purchases and uses a Shell product, such as the new Shell Helix Power 5W. This comes in addition to our existing efforts of responsibly reducing the carbon intensity of oil and gas operations, and investments in lower-carbon sources of energy.”

To commemorate the launch, consumers will also get an exclusive Shell Helix Bamboo Bluetooth Speaker with every purchase of Shell Helix Power 0W-40, Shell Helix Power 5W-40, or Shell Helix Protect 0W-30 four-litre pack at any participating outlets, while stocks last.

During the launch, Nyon Kam Yew, General Manager of Shell Lubricants Business Malaysia & Singapore, said, “Shell Malaysia is introducing the Shell Helix carbon neutral engine oil series under its super premium fully synthetic range – Helix Power and Protect. These engine oils are formulated with Shell PurePlus Technology, which is made from 99.5% pure base oil2 from natural gas, as well as trusted and recommended by Scuderia Ferrari”.

Together with the launch of the carbon-neutral engine oils, Shell is also expanding its offerings with the introduction of 5W-40 viscosity grade under the Power variant. As a measure to ensure the products are genuine before purchasing, it is highly encouraged that our customers look out for the “Untuk Pasaran Malaysia” logo on the front label of the bottle.
