Porsche focuses on eFuels, construction of the factory in Chile is underway


Porsche's strategy for mobility; & egrave; closely linked to the electrification of the range of its cars. However, the German manufacturer is not focusing exclusively on this area. To achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 , Porsche has been for a while now of time is also working on the development of eFuel that will allow to make more & ugrave; sustainable use of endothermic models, given that traditional engines will be on the market for some time yet.

THE PROJECT a production plant of eFuel in Punta Arenas, Chile. And in this country we & egrave; the inauguration ceremony of this project took place a few days ago, with the & quot; laying of the first stone & quot; of the new factory powered entirely by wind energy which is expected to produce around 130,000 liters of eFuel in 2022.

Capacity; productive that will rise to 55 million liters in 2024 and 550 million liters by 2026. Porsche strongly believes in synthetic fuels and already has; started testing them , stating that their use will allow; to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90%. The first practical application will be seen in 2022 when the eFuel will be; used in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup championship.

Synthetic fuels could allow the German manufacturer to save its endothermic models . Think of the 911 but also of many cars of the past. Porsche, in fact, points out that as much as 70% of all its cars ever built & egrave; still in circulation.

Our tests are going very well. The eFuels will make it possible to reduce CO2 emissions in combustion engines by up to 90%. Among other things, we will be using the fuel produced in Chile in our Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup racing cars from 2022.

Porsche is therefore pursuing a double strategy. binary , focusing on both electrification and synthetic fuels to make the use of its cars sustainable and also achieve its ambitious decarbonisation goals.

The factory exploit & agrave; wind power to produce the fuel. In the first stage, electrolysers break down water into oxygen and green hydrogen using wind energy. The CO2 is then filtered out of the air and combined with green hydrogen to produce synthetic methanol, which in turn is converted into eFuel.
