The bulk of the Galactic Cosmic Rays (with energies up to 101 5eV) is believed to be accelerated in the shock f ron rays, radiation which is produced in the interactions of accelerated protons with ambien tmaterial. On this poster we present a summary of the shell-type supernova remnants detected with H.E.S.S. so far. The main problem in the interpretation is the ambiguity of leptonic and hadronic emission in this energy band. We will discuss our results assuming they are an indication for acceleration of protons in the shells of the supernova remnants. We will estimate the possible neutrino flux from these sources. A clear detection of the expected neutrino flux from such objects would be a unique clue for the efficient acceleration of nuclear particles. Supernova remnants in interaction with Molecular Clouds are presented on a separate poster.
