VW, Bosch, Shell Touting Blue Gasoline (Int'l, Alt. Fuels Report)
VW, Bosch, Shell
Date: 2021-05-10
Stuttgart-based German technology provider Bosch, automaker Volkswagen and energy and petrochemical multinational Shell are touting the development of Blue Gasoline, which will be available at Bosch service stations this year.

According to Bosch, this new fuel contains the equivalent of 33 pct renewable energy which reduces its CO2 emissions by 20 pct per kilometer traveled compared to gasoline. "On the path to environmentally friendly mobility we must ensure that we leave no technical opportunity untapped, starting with electromobility and ending with renewable fuels", claimed the president of Bosch's Propulsion Systems Solutions division, Uwe Gackstatter.

VW's director of Development of Internal Combustion Engines, Sebastian Willmann, stresses that Blue Gasoline is another "critical component in reducing vehicle emissions, as it is particularly suitable for use in plug-in hybrid models."

Technically, blue gas is gasoline or diesel that is a hydrocarbon fuel manufactured from hydrogen and carbon feedstocks instead of being refined from petroleum. Hydrogen comes in several colors. Black hydrogen comes from coal gasification and has 20X the mass of CO2 as of produced hydrogen. (Source: Bosch, Shell, Volkswagen, Europe Press, Explica, 9 May, 2021)

Bosch
Date: 2019-05-10
Stuttgart-based German automotive supply giant Robert Bosch LLC reports it plans to become fully carbon neutral by 2020.

The company, which currently emits around 3.3 million metric tpy of C02, aims to achieve its goal by increasing energy efficiency, increasing the share of renewables in its energy supply mix to as much as 40 pct, accessing more green power and offsetting unavoidable CO2 emissions. This includes financing climate protection projects such as wind power in the Caribbean or forest conservation in Africa to offset just under 40 pct of its energy consumption, according to the company release. The company expects its initiative to Icome in at a cost of €2 billion ($2.24 billion) but to deliver about €1 billion in energy efficiency savings. (Source: Robt.
