The first expert talk took place on 14 October on the topic of ‘E-fuels’. Some 30 participants got together at Nürburgring to share the latest findings and discuss the advantages and advantages of various synthetic fuels.
„E-fuels are already suitable for across-the-board use from a technical point of view. If the fuel is produced in North Africa, for example, where the energy yield is three times what we have here in Germany, the cost of a litre of e-fuel is less than a euro.“
“There is clearly a great deal of pressure on everyone to drive development in the field of alternative fuels, and to do that successfully, we need events like this one where we can network and share ideas.”
“The EU Refining Industry is transforming. We are moving into different types of products and want to enable the transport sector to become climate neutral. We believe that e-fuels have a very important role to play together with biofuels, electrification and other low carbon alternatives.”
“Sustainable mobility requires a mix of various alternative fuels and innovative mobility solutions. I believe that tomorrow’s mobility will have at least three key components: electromobility, hydrogen mobility, and e-fuels.”
„The so-called ‘drop-in’ fuels can be used directly, even in older vehicles, making it possible to reduce CO2 emissions over every kilometre covered by the vehicle.”
