Contract Signed SolarFuel a pilot facility for e-gas for by 2013

Renewable methane wind and sun in the tank: The Stuttgart supplier and Ingolstadt automobile signed a contract in October for planning, delivery, installation and of an e-gas facility. Further of the new technology uses not only mobility.

In the future automobiles using gas can on the streets completely climate For this purpose a new technology SolarFuel GmbH converts electricity surpluses into methane. Now the manufacture of sustainable will be used for the first globally, even on a large On October 28, 2011 AUDI AG the construction of a turnkey pilot on an industrial scale from the company. The power input is six megawatts.

The order volume is in the tens of of euros. This large is an important step to commercialisation of the new The planning, delivery, installation and at the Werlte site should be by May 2013.

The facility should 1.4 million cubic metres of per year in natural gas standard With it the project partners are an important foundation for the expansion of energy and for climate-friendly mobility.

The successful conclusion of the contract Audi paves the way for further in the industrialisation of our technology, says Dr. Maria Grьnauer, SolarFuel s Financial Officer and Head of Services for the automobile company.

The of the process originated at the Centre for Energy and Hydrogen Research and the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind and Energy System Technology Funded by the German Federal for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Safety (BMU), the Institute and continue to develop the still technology: Summer 2011 saw the of construction of a test facility 250 kilowatt input power at ZSW in This should be completed the of 2012.

Knowledge gained here flows into the much Audi facility at the Werlte of the power company EWE AG.

In line the commissioning of the e-gas facility in Audi is bringing the A3 TCNG on the in 2013, which can also long distances climate The automobile tanks renewable as fuel, called e-gas by An average of 3,900 cubic of e-gas is produced in Werlte per

This quantity is sufficient for a of 1,500 A3 TCNG with an mileage of 15,000 kilometres Audi is the first manufacturer using this technology for mobility.

Since the introduction of a facility with 25 kilowatt in 2009, the research institutes and have further developed the with significant advances. The German natural gas network large storage capacities is for the methane retrieved from the electricity. For this reason, the gas not improves the climate balance natural gas automobiles. Efficient gas stations with combined and power technology (CHP) and cogeneration units can reconvert the methane and thus have power ready; industrial are able to generate process with the technology.

They will all profit the advances with the 6 megawatt and contribute to solving the problem of of surplus wind and solar
