Porsche and its partners have recently started the production of e-fuel, a combination of water, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide, as an alternative to traditional fuel consumption.
The German car maker has begun commercial production of the synthetic fuel at its pilot plant in Chile. Porsche has stated that the fuel will initially be used in motor sports and then sold to oil companies to distribute to consumers. It is expected that the company will produce 128,000 liters of fuel as an “initial test batch” and for promotional purposes.
Furthermore, the company has plans to generate 145 million gallons of e-fuel in the next 7-8 years and 54 million liters by the end of 2025. If the results are positive, production of this biofuel is expected to increase significantly.
