KIT and car builders seek fossil fuel alternatives

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology has kicked off a research programme called Rethinking Fuels, with support from Baden-Württemberg’s state government and industry.

On 18 January, state transport minister Winfried Hermann inaugurated the programme, which will aim to develop the potential of synthetic fuels from non-fossil sources. The KIT will work with partners in the automotive and mineral oil industries to make a significant contribution to protecting the climate, the institute said in a statement.

“The aim is to examine for the first time the potential of synthetic fuels all the way from their production with renewable energies to their use in vehicles and to the scenarios of a market launch. For climate protection, we have to pull out all the stops,” said Hermann.
