  • Project Description

    Synthetic e-fuels as key enabler for sector linking. The subject of the project is the production of renewable fuels such as methanol and long‑chain hydrocarbons or alcohols. The entire value chain from the production of synthesis gas from renewable electrical energy and CO2 with subsequent chemocatalytic conversion to the fuels to application tests in passenger cars and trucks will be investigated technically and economically and demonstrated in TLR 5‑6.
