ABSTRACT
The article looks at the way Shell is preparing to distribute biofuels in New Zealand. The move came after the New Zealand government said it will ensure that the eco-friendlier fuels make up to 3.4% of conventional petrol and diesel by 2012. Shell New Zealand signed a letter of intent with Argent Energy to deliver fuel and technology to the country by 2008. Jim Collings, general manager of Shell New Zealand, said that local sources will be used extensively to deliver biodiesel and bioethanol.
