  • Project Description

    C3-Mobility aims to show promising ways of CO2-neutral mobility of the future in a closed-loop-cycle. To this end, the long-term motor use of methanol-based fuels, both as pure fuel and as blend, is considered. The final result is a holistic evaluation of the individual fuels with regard to environmental compatibility in production and consumption chains, efficiency as well as sales and market launch. In addition, approaches are being identified to reduce CO2 fleet emissions in the short term. It is examined, which efficiencies Well-to-Wheel are to be reached already today. Methanol-to-Gasoline and 2-butanol are used as blend fuels for the gasoline engine analysis. 1-octanol and oxymethylene ether (OME) are investigated as admixtures for diesel engines. Methanol is the basis of all fuels examined in the C3 mobility project.
