Audi creates fuel from water

Audi made the big leap in technology of synthetic fuels. fuel, named e-benzine without using any petroleum. It boasts an octane rating of 100, although that’s using the European measurement system. Audi is currently reviewing the old fuel with new fuel which only needs water, hydrogen, CO2 and sunlight to create e-benzine.

Audi partnered with Global Bioenergies to produce e-benzin. The partner company operates a plant in France that harvests isobutene from renewable materials, and that forms the basis for e-benzin. A second partner, the Fraunhofer Center for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes, refines the isobutene using hydrogen.

Audi seems to be on a roll when it comes to synthetic fuels. Last fall, it unveiled “e-diesel,” a fossil-free fuel it claims was made using only water, electricity, and CO2 generated by organic waste.

It also began producing “e-gas” in 2013 using wind energy generated by turbines in the North Sea. The fuel was developed more or less specifically for the A3 g-tron hatchback, which is the only natural gas car Audi makes at the moment.

And the Global Bioenergies will be building a demonstration plant at the Fraunhofer Center that will create the e-benzin in larger quantities by 2016, however it is unclear if there is any practical application for the process beyond a mere technology demonstration.. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DIGITAL TRENDS]
