Audi's e-fuel project for producing diesel out of CO₂ was an important milestone but largely unsuccessful

October 02, 2018 | Case Study

The combustion of fuel in the power generation, industrial, and transportation sectors remains by far the largest contributor of greenhouse gases (GHGs) worldwide. Given the widespread use of fossil fuels across major industrial sectors, technology platforms that can recycle the CO2 produced back into a fuel product are attracting strong interest. One of the most high-profile projects in the CO2 ​conversion industry is Audi's e-diesel facility built together with Sunfire, a developer of electrolysis technologies.
