Description

As energy demand continues to rise, so does concern over the future availability of conventional fuels. There is a growing need to find alternative fuel options, such as synthetic fuels. These fuels can be used in existing diesel engines and fuelling infrastructure and significantly reduce exhaust emissions, while diversifying energy sources and improving security of supply. While conventional transport fuels are products of crude oil refining, synthetic fuels can be produced from natural gas, biomass, or coal feedstock. Synthetic fuels derived from natural gas are already available and the supplies are due to increase over the next few years. Once commercially available, synthetic fuels made from biomass could substantially decrease global greenhouse gas emissions. Much progress has been made in the refinement and optimization of modern engines and fuels to deliver both improved efficiency and reduced emissions. The car manufacturers are working together with the fuel suppliers to make a new generation of engines, with further improvements in engine efficiency and reduced exhaust emissions using synthetic fuel. Synthetic fuels can have a positive impact on European competitiveness and employment.
