Sustainable, efficient and low in pollutants - tastes good to everyone!

In the cluster of excellence "The Fuel Science Center" (FSC), innovative and sustainable processes for the conversion of renewable electricity with biomass-based raw materials and CO 2 into liquid energy sources with high energy density are investigated. Such a "bio-hybrid fuel" is a well-defined mixture of different molecular components with optimal properties for current and future combustion systems. The lecture shows how the latest generation of these fuels, a combination of renewable carbon sources with regenerative electricity, already leads to low pollutant emissions and what potential it has for climate-neutral mobility.
