JUNE 25, 2013
Audi has opened its e-gas plant in Werlte, making it the first automobile manufacturer to develop a chain of sustainable energy carriers. Water and oxygen are the only by-products. Driving with Audi e-gas is climate-neutral, since the CO 2 generated when the vehicle is driven had been bound previously during the production of the e-gas. At this facility, microorganisms use water (brackish, salt or wastewater) sunlight and carbon dioxide to produce high-purity fuels.
