New Shell Helix: The Carbon Neutral Engine Oil

Shell Malaysia has introduced its first line of carbon-neutral engine oils, the Helix Power and Protect range. The fully synthetic oils, which come in three varieties – Shell Helix Power 0W-40, Shell Helix Power 5W-40, and Shell Helix Protect 0W-30 – are made from 99.5% pure base oil derived from natural gas.

In an effort to offset the remaining carbon emissions, Shell is offering the option to purchase carbon credits to balance out the full lifecycle emissions of the Helix Carbon Neutral products. This move aligns with Shell’s goal of becoming a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050.
