Audi wants to change the world with e-gas

Thursday, 07 February 2013 10:13

Are only a few months for the biggest gamble of sustainable mobility by Audi sees the light, called e-gas, and we will tell MotorFull as facilities are ending this great challenge to the German mark. The aim is to produce e-gas, synthetic natural gas to be transported through the public network of natural gas filling stations for CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) is in Germany. This has moved from one end to another of the country a big heavy methanation reactor, which has been manufactured by MAN, another VAG Group company, in the town of Deggendorf.

A MAN-TGX tractor, equipped with a 16.2-liter V8 engine, is responsible for nearly 150 toneledas move the weight of the trailer, and not only that, but you have to meet the high expectations to help prepare the way tomorrow s mobility.

This burden has to travel in only one night 350 kilometers avoiding large population centers such as Cologne, reaching Wertle, a small town in northwest Germany where Audi is building its e-gas plant, on land occupying 4,100 square meters.

This fuel using hydrogen generated in a respectful with the environment and CO2 will cause e-gas, synthetic natural gas transported Quese through the public network of natural gas (with the e-gas is completely compatible) to CNG stations (GasNatural Compressed) in Germany.

Why Audi is spending so much time and effort to this project?


Why in Werlte and Ingolstadt, where is located the main floor of Audi? The goal is mobility without CO2 emissions. This requires the use of alternative energy sources, like wind power to generate electricity. And there is excess wind in northern Germany.

During manufacture of the e-CO2 gas is absorbed, which would otherwise go into the atmosphere. When fuel is burned in the engine, an amount of CO2 equivalent to the previously absorbed is released again. The result is a completely closed CO2 cycle, which means an outstanding performance from the environmental standpoint.

The land that Audi has in Werlte still under construction, but when the snow melts, the plant will start its trial period, which will be completed by the summer of 2013. From that moment, is provided annually about 1,000 metric tons of e-gas through the natural gas utility. The plant is ready to absorb about 2,800 metric tons of CO2 each year, which is roughly the same amount absorbed by 224,000 trees of the species has in the same period. And the first series production car powered by this fuel is also innovative in design: the Audi A3 Sportback TGNC that appear at dealers in late 2013, will help pave the way for a promising future.

In the long run, 1,500 vehicles powered by compressed natural gas will travel 15,000 miles each with a neutral balance of carbon dioxide emissions, thanks to e-gas produced in Werlte.

The e-gas plant in Werlte solve a number of significant problems related to renewable energy revolution: among others, the storage of surplus electricity. At present, the power grid can not always transmit enough power from the north coast of Germany to the towns of the south with large appetites. If excess electricity is converted to methane, as happens in the e-gas plant of Audi, then this energy can be stored in the natural gas network and subsequently distributed.

Can you imagine an investment of this magnitude in your country? It would be wonderful, and although we do not know the price of e-gas, looks great.
