Several car companies have recently announced that they will stop producing cars with internal combustion engines in the next few years and start focusing on full or at least majority electrification. In part, they were forced to do so by tough regulations by which authorities, blocs and organizations try to minimize the negative impact of transport on the environment. For example, the EU wants to ban the sale of new vehicles with a combustion engine as early as 2035.
However, some car companies want to solve the situation in a different way than by completely eliminating combustion engines. Instead, they strive for a more detailed investigation of alternative fuels that would be not only more efficient, but also more ecological. If they find a suitable solution, they are willing to invest in it.
Automobile companies are supposed to report to this group Toyota, Subaru, Suzuki and Daihatsuwhile they will be assisted by Toyota Tsusho Corporation and NEOS Corporation, he writes Motor1.com.
A new association is created
The quartet even had to create a research association for this purpose on July 1, which is the intention look for ways to optimize fuel production to make it less polluting and more efficient. The association is called Research Association of Biomass Innovation for Next Generation Automobile Fuels.
The accompanying press release states that the association will work to support technological research in the field of biomass utilization. The project should also include investigation of methods of production of bioethanol fuel using hydrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide and possibly the design, installation and operation of equipment for its production.
An essential part of the plan should also be the research of the by-product of oxygen or the development of a system that will take care of the design of optimal cultivation methods to ensure the raw materials needed for the production of bioethanol fuels.
