Synthetic fuels / Audi e-fuels

Researchers produce first Audi “e-benzin”

Audi’s involvement in the development of sustainable, CO2-based fuels – Audi e-fuels – is without parallel. Audi is demonstrating today that it is possible to produce petroleum-independent fuels that bind as much CO2 during their production as is emitted when they are combusted. The result is a closed CO2 cycle – a foundation for sustainable mobility with uncompromising range.

    Audi advances e-fuels technology: new “e-benzin” fuel being tested

    Audi is convinced of the potential of the fuels e-gas, “e-benzin” (e-gasoline) and e-diesel and is continuing to pursue its e-fuels strategy. In the case of synthetic Audi “e-benzin” (e-gasoline), the Ingolstadt company has now achieved an important intermediate goal. Together with their development partners, they have for the first time produced a sufficient quantity of regeneratively produced fuel for initial engine tests.
