Welcome to Futuria Fuels

We’re all in on
sustainable fuels
for off-grid

Futuria Fuels sees a sustainable future for the liquid fuels industry. Through collaboration, we have already started building it. Here’s how.

The greatest challenge for off-grid fuel supply is finding viable sustainable fuel alternatives for a wide range of existing applications. We are developing sustainable pathways for on-purpose production, at volume affordably. 

Futuria Fuels is collaborating with academics, industry and technology providers to develop these solutions. 

Introducing Futuria Fuels


Who are we?

A business unit of SHV Energy, Futuria Fuels is innovating on-purpose production of sustainable fuels predominantly in the form of renewable liquid gas. 

SHV Energy has been safely delivering energy to customers across the world for over 125 years. We pioneered the introduction of bioLPG to the market in 2018. SHV Energy focuses on the off-grid market. It is critical that we develop sustainable alternatives in this sector if we are to achieve global sustainability and net-zero targets. 

Futuria Fuels was founded by SHV Energy to lead the global advocacy of sustainable molecules, aiming to deliver viable sustainable fuel to off-grid customers. Through collaboration, we are building partnership and investment opportunities which will directly result in the defossilisation of liquid gas for customers and suppliers.

The Futuria Fuels team and our partners are already hard at work.

Collaborate with us

We are in this together

Futuria Fuels is bringing together the brightest minds in the LPG industry, academia, and technology providers to change off-grid fuels. 
We are developing on-purpose processes to produce:

  • bioLPG
  • rDME
  • eLPG and rLPG
  • H2

These technologies are leading the off-grid sector to a defossilised future, where fuels are created from a wide range of sustainable feedstocks.
