Global Bioenergies delivers renewable gasoline components to Audi

March 14, 2018 |

In France, Global Bioenergies and German carmaker Audi announced that a key milestone was reached in their multi-year agreement. Renewable gasoline components were produced and shipped to Audi.

Using its Leuna Demo plant, Global Bioenergies has produced high-purity renewable isobutene, which was further converted by the Fraunhofer Institute into high-performance gasoline additives including isooctane, ETBE and isododecane. These e-fuels will be used in engine testing by Audi, in complement to those already performed by Global Bioenergies.

Currently, a small part of Global Bioenergies’ ton scale isobutene production is directed toward e-fuels, using Fraunhofer’s lab scale conversion unit. From the e-fuel produced, a batch of 60 litres was delivered to Audi. The e-fuel production capacity will be significantly increased in 2019 with the addition to the Leuna Demo plant of a dedicated fuel production unit, which will allow the production of renewable gasoline batches.
