|If we succeeded in utilising one 10 thousandth of the sun energy on earth, we would not have to worry about CO2-free production.
If we put it simple, for the future the petrol car must become much more efficient with its fuel, and the diesel must greatly improve in terms of exhaust gas pollutants. The Diesel engine does not only produce nitrogen
oxides and particles, but also too much carbon dioxide. Even if the Diesel engine is almost as economical with its fuel inside the city as a hybrid car, it still expels 13% more CO2. Therefore, biomass is even more important for the diesel engine than for the petrol car.
How it works
What if the higher CO2 portion of the diesel engine would already have been taken away from the atmosphere by the plant? And if this fuel would be free enough of sulphur that it would not take away the
spots of the nitrogen oxides in the Denox catalyst? This and ever more is possible with Sun-Fuel, a tailor-made fuel for future diesel engines.
In the meantime, the question is no longer whether we should engage in the production of bio-fuels, but rather how to proceed further after establishment of the first production plants? Worries are still in place about
the efficiency of the production which absolutely must be more than doubled. Of course, immense investments are also necessary to build enough factories in the proximity of the raw material, but at least it seems a
possibility without all the imponderabilities we face with hydrogen. The demand in manpower in the countryside should also be regarded, as well as being independent of crisis areas. This approach is well-suited as
interim and maybe one day also as one of the final solutions of the climate-warming problem.
In the history of the car the cooperation between mineral oil companies and vehicle manufacturers is by no means uncommon. Already during the first twenty years of the 20th century the fuel provided by adding
antiknock additives for the production of engines with more compression, performance and less consumption. And the cooperation developed continuously further. By the end of the century, e.g., the chemists
excluded the lead from the petrol to allow the installation of three-way catalytic converters.
If now the cooperated development of fuel and engines proceeds, already during the combustion nearly only half as many particles form. These do not have to be filtered out and be regenerated any more with
additional fuel. In contrast to bio diesel, Sunfuel, although biologically gained, could be named synthetic fuel, because there are a
lot more interventions into the ´natural´ process. Taking pure carbon as basis, a new connection is built up. It can be adapted exactly to the engine development. As an other advantage we might expect the utilisation of
the whole plant what would raise the efficiency of the production. The application of this fuel is, by the way, not restricted to diesel engines. By the way, it is also down compatible, i.e. it can be used in contrast to
biodiesel and much more so as compared to coldly pressed vegetable oil in every diesel without structural adjustments to the
With Sunfuel kerosene can be produced besides diesel oil for jet planes. Primarily by supplementing additives to raise the antiknock properties also petrol or an intermediate product evolves. Today you might talk
already of hybrid forms between both engine kinds which would reduce the problem with the nitrogen oxides and for the Otto engine the consumption. Also smog reduction (CH4) in summer would be
possible with the new fuel and respective engines.
