Porsche to start producing synthetic fuels in 2022

February 16, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

This was told by the boss of the sports division of the brand Porsche Frank Walliser.

As early as 2022, Porsche will launch its own plant for the production of environmentally friendly synthetic fuels for existing vehicles with combustion engines. At the start of work, production will not be as large as we would like, but upon completion of all tests, the plant will start producing more.

It is reported that the first plant will be built in Chile and will use wind energy to produce synthetic fuels. The company plans to produce up to 55 million liters of such fuel by 2024, and ten times more by 2026.

Recall that synthetic fuel technology has a number of advantages over fossil fuels. Firstly, the engines will not change for this type of fuel. Secondly, according to preliminary data, power units live much longer. Thirdly, synthetic fuels contain 8-10 components, while conventional fuels contain up to 40, which leads to harmful emissions. Finally, the production of synthetic fuels minimizes by-products.
