F1 sends newly developed sustainable fuel for testing

December 17, 2020 |

In the UK, FIA announced on Thursday that it has delivered to F1’s power unit manufacturers for testing the first barrels of a 100% sustainable fuel developed by the governing body.

The FIA has also committed to becoming carbon neutral from 2021 and net zero by 2030 as part of an ambitious environmental strategy approved during its Annual general Assembly week and destined to reduce the environmental impact of motorsport.

The introduction of the hybrid engine in Grand Prix racing in 2014 marked the sport’s first step towards sustainability.

But the research, development and production by the FIA’s Technical Department of a 100 % sustainable fuel, developed to stringent F1 specifications, is another significant milestone in F1’s quest to reduce its carbon emissions.
