About 70% of all Porsches built so far are still on the road, and carbon-friendly fuels can last them longer.

Porsche has announced that work is underway on its new synthetic fuel plant in Chile, which will produce 550 million liters of fuel by 2026.

According to the company, the fuel can be used in any Porsche in its current range without any modification. It will be introduced in one of its self-made 911 SuperCup race series next year before it becomes available for passenger cars.

The Harrow wool plant is being built in collaboration with Siemens Energy, AME and Enel, as well as Chilean petrol company ENAP.

It is being built for its high wind conditions in southern Chile, to produce a low-carbon synthetic fuel from green hydrogen produced by wind-powered electrolysis with carbon dioxide. It makes methane, which is then converted to gasoline.

The plant is expected to produce about 130,000,000 liters of CO2 neutral fuel in 2022, before rising to 55 million liters in 2024, then 550 million liters in 2026. 90%

This means that Porsche will have an overall CO2 neutral balance sheet by 2030 and renewable energy fuels can contribute.

He added that 70% of all Porsche manufactured are still on the road, which helped the company produce synthetic fuels.

It could eventually be made available to all Combustion cars, such as Porsche’s head of GT sports cars and the 911 product line, the Frank Walizer, Said earlier “No engine modification is necessary, unlike what we’ve seen with the E10 and E20, really, everyone can use it, and we’re testing with regular pump fuel springs.”

New fuels reduce engine emissions by about 90 percent compared to regular gasoline.

New fuels reduce engine emissions by about 90 percent compared to regular gasoline.

“It doesn’t affect performance – some horses more, so it’s going in the right direction – but the emission is better.

It is a bit difficult to make it available to all vehicles, however, it will need to be accepted by various governments for sale at petrol stations, especially as many people consider the sale of new combustion vehicles to be completely illegal. Are giving

There is even a chance that Porsche could sell Fuel Formula 1, which wants to be carbon neutral by 2030. Urs Technica.Steiner confirmed that Porsche and F1 are talking: “We will be able to contribute to them, but not yet at the beginning.”
