Always Certas 1 Looking after our environment Safe and secure storage Responsible for managing 71% of land in the UK (DEFRA), farming is at the heart of our environment and we’re here to support this valuable work where we can. With the threat of prosecution and fines for failing to follow DEFRA’s guidance on storing agricultural fuel oil, there are multiple considerations that need to be taken into account to ensure the safe and secure storage of fuel on a farm – from dealing with tank cracks and leaks to monitoring fuel levels and preventing contamination, we help you to be both compliant and safe. Whether you store your fuel in one location or spread across your farm, our tanks are 110% integrally bunded and designed to meet and exceed local environmental guidelines, fuel storage standards and manufacturing regulations. Rest assured, our tanks are guaranteed to keep your valuable assets safe for a long time. Working together to keep health and safety a priority Unfortunately, farming still remains to be one of the UK’s most hazardous industries. We raise awareness of key safety issues relating to fuel and machinery maintenance to help keep you and your farm safe. Always committed to preventing injuries to our customers, colleagues and others who may be affected by our activities, our culture of strong safety and compliance principles drives our dedicated Safety F1rst and Doing the Right Thing campaigns. Fully compliant with all applicable legislation and industry codes of practice as a minimum standard, we strive to achieve best practice and continual improvement in our health and safety performance – whether its ensuring safe deliveries of fuel to making sure our drivers operate safely on the roads. Our management systems are backed up by our accreditations in health and safety (BS OHSAS 18001) quality (ISO 9001) and environmental management (ISO 14001). We are also members of the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS), which assures our approach to safety, efficiency and environmental protection in our fleet operation, combined with a commitment to measure, monitor and improve our performance.

Certas Energy is proud to be the UK’s exclusive distributor of Shell GTL Fuel, providing a drop-in cleaner burning alternative to diesel. Suitable for both on and off-road vehicles and machinery, the fuel is proven to lower emissions, improving local air quality. Tests have shown that Shell GTL can reduce NOx (harmful nitrogen oxide) emissions by up to 37% and PM (particulate matter) by up to 38%. Approved by John Deere and many other OEMs, Shell GTL Fuel can be used as a direct replacement for conventional diesel all year round, meaning no engine modifications are required. Due to the fuel’s winter grade (18 o C), this is especially beneficial during cold weather or in the build up to winter preparation to minimise the risk of waxing. Free of unwanted components, the fuel is non-toxic to the environment, your family and your farming workforce. 10 1 Talk to us today about Shell GTL Fuel Call 0345 600 4040 After using Shell GTL Fuel supplied by Certas Energy over harvest in a variety of Fendt, New Holland and JCB tractors, we noticed the difference immediately. We previously had problems with water contamination in the tractor fuel tanks but the improved storage and stability of Shell GTL have rectified these issues. We also reduced our AdBlue ® usage. The fact we didn’t have to make any changes to our engines or tanks was a huge advantage and it’s great to know that we’re reducing our impact on the environment without affecting our productivity.
