Do you feel a twinge of every time you fill tank with dirty What if you could power car with a carbon neutral fuel substitute? Introducing s new e-fuel, an energy source powers a standard engine gas or diesel, but uses CO2 instead of dinosaurs and petrified algae.

Seeing as most electric have a somewhat limited long charging time, and nationwide re-fueling infrastructure, believe that a majority of will be riding around an internal combustion engine for the couple decades. The e-fuel has the of already being able to advantage of gas stations as well as the and non-potable water sources it to create the compound. Here is how it

Forget drilling or fracking for Audi s e-gas, e-diesel, and take advantage of already sources of CO2 for production. Being neutral, the fuels consume as carbon dioxide during the process as they expel being burned. First, is obtained from a plant processes organic waste. Audi harnesses the CO2 that have otherwise been into the atmosphere to make through electrolysis powered by energy sources such as or solar. Afterward, CO2 is added to the to make methane and


Unlike hydrogen by itself, are already existing national for methane, allowing e-gas to an existing infrastructure.

Audi is building a plant in Germany to e-fuel and introduce the A3 TCNG. a car can run on both e-gas and regular fuels. Here in the US, e-fuel and are being made by Audi and partner Joule in New Mexico by non-food crops, dirty and microbes. In this process, organisms consume sunlight, waste CO2, and brackish to excrete fuel.

This way, there is no to use valuable drinking water or land to make the e-fuel.

At e-fuels are facing several Audi would ideally the price of a barrel of e-fuel to the price of a barrel of oil. hope to be at around $100 a by 2020 as they begin to up their plants.

Another they have to face is E-ethanol has already reached gallons per acre, which is than many biofuels, but miniscule in comparison to dominance of Also, while carbon the fuel is not actively cleaning the just creating a zero net of greenhouse gasses.

However, creating synthetic is an intriguing step towards a biological and mechanical loophole and one weapon in the arsenal in combating climate change.
