Ampol to conduct renewable diesel trial with Hanson

Ampol will conduct a renewable diesel trial with Hanson, a leader in building and construction materials, as its first customer partner.

The trial will see Ampol supply Hanson with a blend consisting of 20 per cent renewable diesel and 80 per cent ultra-low sulphur diesel in addition to its Ampol Amplify additives and will allow Ampol to get a practical understanding of the customer demand and market feasibility of renewable diesel in Australia.

Brent Merrick, Executive General Manager, International and New Business at Ampol, said they are acutely aware that their customers’ transport energy priorities are shifting and that partnering with industry leaders such as Hanson is vital in ensuring they continue to evolve.

“This renewable diesel trial is another step in our development of a renewable fuels business in Australia. The availability of renewable diesel, particularly for hard-to-abate areas, is of particular interest as it does not require vast fleet or infrastructural changes.”

“Renewable diesel has an important role to play in the energy transition. We would like to thank Hanson for committing to this journey with Ampol.”

Phil Schacht, Chief Executive at Hanson Australia, said this trial furthers Hanson’s commitment to CO2 reduction across the supply chain, with innovation being the key to its roadmap.

The trial will start in the coming weeks and run for approximately two months, with an evaluation process to be executed prior to exploring a wider roll out to Ampol’s broader customer base.
