Audi embarks on further neutral drop-in e-fuels with Global Bioenergies

Hydrogen, electricity, biofuels, One of these energy sources emerge as the future of personal powering our cars while little or no harmful emissions the atmosphere. The million-dollar question is one?’

Like many Audi doesn’t claim to the answer – nobody does for certain – and so is keeping a number of RD on the boil. One of them is e-gasoline, along with e-diesel, and e-gas is part of a quartet of fuels that operate in the way that fossil fuels do but far less emissions both operation and acquisition. These are also collectively known as fuels, as they require no modifications to existing engines and can be in any ratio with standard

As such, Audi has recently a tie-up with French Global Bioenergies to develop technology further.

“We’re another step closer to neutral mobility with our at Global Bioenergies,” said head of sustainable development, Mangold. “We are supporting an innovative here which can be used to renewable fuel. This does not create competition food production and farmland.”

These e-fuels use pre-existing dioxide to produce energy-rich rather than fossil and so represent a halfway point what we have now and complete

The process to create e-gasoline may be similar to that of Audi s project, which is already in swing. The company already has an plant in Werlte, in northwest where carbon neutral separates water into and hydrogen. In years to come hydrogen could easily be to power fuel cell such as the new Hyundai Tucson. but for now reacted with carbon to produce synthetic methane – or e-gas, as the company calls it.

a pure electric or hydrogen cell car, a vehicle on e-gas will unavoidably carbon dioxide during However, Audi argues since carbon dioxide is during the production of the its own e-gas – when it is reacted with to produce methane and water – driving the company A3 Sportback can be considered carbon neutral.

Audi says that the A3 g-tron emits as much dioxide on the road as is used the production of synthetic methane – a that would apply to any using renewable electricity.

The also says that the A3 g-tron emits 152g/mile dioxide on its own, but that drops to 31g/mile when the production is taken into While that figure the g-tron isn’t technically neutral, it does factor in the footprint of building and operating an plant. With than in we consider it to be a remarkable figure.

Audi anticipates that from Werlte will a A3 Sportback g-tron for 9,320 of carbon neutral driving year.
