Audi commits to green

Audi has become the world s carmaker to commit to the production of energy and its subsequent refinement a carbon-neutral fuel source for and trucks.

Plenty of carmakers are new technologies to reduce our reliance on the s dwindling supply of natural But while most makers are at work improving engines to use fuel/diesel, or are busy developing electric or fuel cell Audi has had its head down on a well- (so to speak) to-wheel

It s calling it: the e-gas project and it s Audi invest around 50 euro establishing a sustainable of carbon-neutral energy. And that source is wind.

To that Audi has signed-off on the construction of wind turbines to be located in the Sea; the electricity generated be fed into the public power in Germany. But it doesn t end there. Audi has already commissioned the of a production plant that use the wind-generated electricity to create via electrolysis.

Rather than spirited away for use in fuel vehicles (the current to store and deliver hydrogen is limited), the hydrogen will be with the addition of CO2 (from the to create methane, which calls e-gas.

E-gas or methane, etc does greenhouse gas emissions out of the tailpipe but the CO2 being emitted has already drawn in from the atmosphere the production of the fuel, running a on Audi s egas makes it neutral. Clever, eh.

It s important to that e-gas, or methane, is identical to natural gas (the stuff used to run your stove, or heating) and so can be used to internal combustion engines very little modifcation. than that, the storage and of this e-gas, or methane remember, is chemically identical to gas), requires no modifcation of the gas and transfer grid.

And Audi isn t alone in this truck makers like have embraced natural gas as a source, although it hasn t as far as Audi and gotten involved in the of a synthetic natural gas. some 8 million vehicles the world run on natural gas.

FuelMaker Corporation has created a home-based natural gas refueling called Phil. Basically, it plugged into your gas supply, and you can fill your car at It has start and stop buttons and itself off when the tank is

It gets better, because in US states buyers of natural vehicles are eligible for a rebate of US$4000, and US$1000 for installing

So, when looked at on its merits, and the benefits of Audi s approach to electricity from renewable and producing a fuel source for methane makes total as the fuel source of the future.

Starting in 2013, Audi be releasing a number of TCNG (the first will be A3 followed by A4 TCNG) whose will be powered by e-gas from electricity generated by the farms in the North Sea.

has stated that if the initial rollout of the A3 and A4 TCNG cars both popular and successful it look into investing in projects around the world. who says the news is all bad.
