Why let CO2 escape?
The natural gas burning A3 sportback G- Tron, is the latest Audi car that will run on CO2 taken from the atmosphere and turned into Natural gas.
“It’s a very cool idea to take CO2 that would otherwise escape into the atmosphere and turn it into hydrogen and synthetic natural gas.” – AutoBlog
How it works?
Step 1: Wind Energy (Completely renewable): The starting point for Audi e-gas project is electricity generated via renewable wind energy.
Step 2: Power Grid: The wind energy is fed into the public power grid.
Step 3: Electrolysis: The electrolysis plant which is operated by wind power, splits water into Hydrogen and Oxygen.
Step 4: Methanation: The hydrogen reacts with Carbon Dioxide in the methanation plant. The result is e-gas (synthetic natural gas).
Step 5: CNG Station: The e-gas is thus stored and transported to the filling stations to be filled into your Audi A3
