Jülich evaluation of power-to-fuels recommends DME, OME3-5 and n-alkanes as diesel substitutes

Green Car Congress

An evaluation of the implementation possibilities of power-to-fuel (PTF) technologies by a team from Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH in Germany recommends the PTF products DME, OME 3-5 and n-alkanes as suitable diesel alternatives for the transportation sector. PTF processes essentially use renewable energy, CO 2 and water to produce fuel, as in Audi’s targeted e-fuels projects. A paper on the Jülich study is published in the journal Fuel.
