Why Synthetic Fuel Could Replace Electric Cars

Thanks to The Zebra for sponsoring today’s video. See how much money you can save today by comparing car insurance rates with a quick visit to bit.ly/TheZebraBumper
Synthetic fuels are fuels made from water and carbon dioxide from the air. You split the water into hydrogen and oxygen, and combine the oxygen with CO2 to create hydrocarbons. Basically what burning fuel does but in reverse. If the energy used to do this comes from a sustainable source (i.e. wind or solar) you will have net zero emissions, and none of the environmental impact of mining the metals used in batteries. This could effectively make ICE engines better for the environment than EVs.

    Hm, Why would I want to mess with noisy, grimy, grubby old internal combustion cr4p when I can drive a zippy, zoomy and clean EV? Right, I don't and I haven't even gone into efficiency of operating it. No way that a internal combustion can ever hope to be operated more efficiently than electic. Just starting up an internal combustion car, it converts at least 50% of its energy directly into heat that is used for eggsackly nothing! Zip, Zilch, Nada, except that we have to get rid of it, which adds an addition 5 to 10% to its energy loss! and that even b4 we are taking the inefficiency and losses in the transmission into account (which electric doesn't need because it just doesn't.).

    Also no lithium mining, it already takes about 10 years of normal use for an EV to break even with the emissions of a petrol car due to the additional manufacturing emissions. So your old 911 is better for the environment with this than someone buying a Tesla. Hell second hand a petrol car will take 60 years to break even with a new EV

    Too bad you overlooked an interesting project EXACTLY going in the same direction. The ETH Zurich and the DLR (the german aerospace research institute) developed the "Sun-to-Liquid" process. It uses mirrors to heat up a thermal reactor to generate kerosene from CO2 and H2O. They have built a test plant in Spain. The process works. This is of course especially interesting for the air travel industry, but kerosene is not more than highly pure diesel, so you could use it for ships, for your home, for cars - and the process is probably modifyable to produce other carbohydrates. For me the biggest advantage of that process lies in the ability to store the solar energy in a very dense form without losses over long periods of time, to be able to transport it without losing energy in the transmission (like for electricity) - and to reuse the whole infrastructure that is existing. Everywhere where there is sun you could produce such fuel, e.g. also in Australia, and ship it in standard oil tankers all around the world. Or ALL over Africa, in the South American deserts (and the North American ones), in Asia, in Russia, there would be a multitude of providers. No one has a key role, they are all interchangeable. Saudi Arabia could use its deserts, too, but has no monopoly.

    This doesn't make sense. Electrical grid is mostly coal and less renewable energy but in the future it will look completely opposite. Renewable energy is growing at a rapid pace and coal plants are being shut down because they are expensive. Synthetic fuel is solving a temporary problem that won't exist in the future.

    Your septic tank really was the answer. You just needed to be a bit more desperate :) Air products or SASOL is already pumping air from the atmosphere and they are extracting all the different gasses and packaging it for industry, one of the byproducts is pure carbon and that they useto make all kinds of stuff like batteries but, if im not mistaken. Theyget given carbon points because of the extraction process and they sell tgose points to the more "dirty" departments of the company. The companies original claim to fame was its patent that could make clean fuel from dirty low grade coal and the year that that patent became public they went and claimed a new patent process that could extract all the different "air products" from right our of the air in a cost-effective way :) Natural gas is the way to go. . .

    Such a stupid idea. Just use biogas (methane, just like natural gas, but renewable) from biological waste (trash), this is already been done for years in northern Europe and we have buses that runs on our trash. Electric cars are still better and biogas should really only be used by airplanes and boats since recharging in are and at sea is not possible.

    An ICE can burn pure hydrogen too and liquid hydrogen can eliminate expensive carbon wrapped cylinders and energy used for compression but there is a boil off issue for vehicles not in constant use.Why not a liquid hydrogen hybrid with a plug-in feature?80-90% of your daily driving is done within a 40 mile range so the hydrogen would only be used for extended trips.Hydrogen refueling will be available for trucking on the interstates soon.A fuelcell might be a more efficient use of the hydrogen though and then there is also the possibility of the synergy effect of a critical temperature fluid and superconducting.Kinetic and heat energy recovery. "Hydrogen combustion engines are essentially modified versions of a conventional internal combustion engine and completely different to hydrogen fuel cells. Ricardo will be testing its prototype with its long-term combustion engine research partner, the University of Brighton, at the university’s engine development facility."

      There has been known a submerged turbine generator comprising a turbine and a generator. Generally, a low-temperature fluid having a high pressure, such as liquid nitrogen, liquefied natural gas, or liquid ethylene, is used as a working fluid to rotate the turbine. The torque of the turbine rotates a rotor of the generator to thereby generate electric power. The generator is submerged in the working fluid (i.e., the low-temperature fluid) so as to be cooled by the working fluid.

      Magnesium diboride’s superconductivity was discovered only in 2001, and although it doesn’t lose its resistance until it dips below 40 K, it’s so much less expensive that it beat YBCO in every cost analysis. At about €4 (US $4.63) per meter of tape, MgB2 is “maybe not the material that gives the best performance, but it gives the best cost performance,” says Marino.

    The problem with synthetic fuels is the same which hydrogen powered fuel cell cars are currently facing: The on electrolysis based production of either hydrogen or synthetic fuels is just super inefficent and power consuming. This is the major advantage battery powered cars are currently boasting. They are using the energy in a more direct way, without transforming it step by step into an alternative energy storing medium. With many industries electrifying to reduce carbon emissions and the hence rising need in sustainably produced electricity, there simply is no capacity to switch to synthetic fuels, at least not in the near future, where the main focus should be put on a rapid transformation into a carbon neutral world. I could see synthetic fuels though succeed in the world of car enthusiasts/racing and other industries which are hardly electrifiable. In the the end, all of this boils down to carbon neutral fuels just being expensive as mentioned in the video, but I thought there was further insight needed, why electric cars are gaining the main attention these days when it comes to carbon neutral vehicles. Great video as always! Keep it up and greetings from Germany!

    Industry Experts are saying EVs will be cheaper to make than conventional autos within 6 years, some are saying three. Makers will be switching over their production lines and are already planning too. From that point demand for fuel will drop dramatically over the following decade. What’s are the chances of recovering the R&D costs and getting production costs of an alternative fuel low enough to be viable in that time ? This zero emissions fuel is fantasy land stuff and a last gasp for the fossil fuel industry, along with blue/grey/brown hydrogen and a massive push to ramp up plastic consumption.

Also a big advantage of EV's is that they are not producing CO2 at the spot wich is a very good thing for in cities (way better air quality there).

    This idea doesn't make sense at scale. In order produce it with green electricity, drastically more renewable capacity would need to be constructed than to just run EVs because of electrolysis loss as well as compounding efficiency losses in production, fuel transport, and finally combustion in the vehicle. The synthetic fuel would also be expensive at the pump compared to electricity. What's also left out is the massive battery installations needed for a renewable grid (batteries being the source of much of EV manufacture pollution). The larger energy consumption and battery storage facilities from eFuel inefficiency would inevitably make them more polluting than direct use of electricity.

    We must remember both Audi & Porsche come under the Volkswagen umbrella. Let that sink in. Haha. The only plausible reason Audi is pushing for electric would be simple business sense for the whole VW group. If one fails, the other acts as a backup. I won't be surprised if their research work was transferred to Porsche. As Porsche is more of a sport/enthusiast oriented brand than Audi which is more large scale production and diverse. I'd say, Porsche should keep pushing forward with their synthetic fuel, not just for us enthusiasts, but they would do the whole world a massive service because the whole idea behind implementing EVs everywhere while scrapping our ICE cars is full of hypocrisy.

    Its expensive because its new tech. Just look at EVs, and look at the first Model S and Leaf... not cheap cars. Today they are alot cheaper and you get longer range on both.... Why the synthetic fuel was scraped is probably someone will loose money, or that means introducing a third fuel option to gasoline and diesel, adding a third pump... And the infrastructure needed for it. Also old cars cant support this fuel, that is just mention the E85 for gasoline cars. It have to be converted to handle it. Its easier to just make electric cars than making new infrastructure to produce this E Fuel, as it have to be made. The gas station infrastructure is existing and can be easily converted to E Fuel.

    you guys are WAY OFF BASE!! ICE's are at best 25% efficient (or in other words 75% of the energy burned goes out the exhaust pipe or the radiator...etc...). While stationary electric power plants can get up to 85% of the energy burned when burning fossil fuel OR SYNTHETIC FUEL. So even if the chemists can come up with an economically feasible way to manufacture synthetic fuels to burn,,, we would be better off burning the synthetics in a electricity generating power plant and charging electric vehicles. As usual the Germans have their heads up their arrogant aryan butts.

    Does anyone remember a car company that had a fresh air inlet into the exhaust system that mixed with the fumes and just made it look like the exhaust was cleaner when it exited the tailpipe? Or is that just how all new cars are getting around the cleaner exhaust mandate?

    This is just "using more electricity to solve a problem EV's literally do for less" also where do you think electricity comes from atm in our world. Its still primarily fossil fuels btw. Until we generate all our electricity worldwide through renewables or some kind of nuclear, this is useless.

    How would you like to drive a 450- well over 550hp naturally aspirated vehicle, that doesn't require a large cooling system and gets 30mpg running on a fuel you can make yourself that is carbon neutral and does not pollute since it only makes CO2 and H2O when you burn it in an engine? Here is the short version of how. Take nearly any V8 5.0 or larger in displacement, (any engine will work, but you get more power from larger engines) crank up the compression over 13:1 but keep it under 22:1, add an EFI system that allows you to heat the fuel in the rails to around 200F before the injectors, but after the return line, you don't want to heat the tank. Place the injectors farther up the intake runner, more like a carb introduces fuel at the start of the runner, the modern EFI intakes aren't intended for wet flow, but you can introduce the heated fuel farther upstream to ensure it has plenty of time to vaporize and cool the intake charge. Direct injection won't work so well, its a bandaid for gasoline. Now run it on E98 to E100. You'll get more power, cooler operating temps, a cleaner engine, vastly cleaner exhaust, and better mileage doing this. If you do not denature the vodka with gasoline, and instead use some other substance to make the government happy, you will only produce CO2 and H2O. No, it is not new, vehicles ran on ethanol before they ran on gasoline. Prohibition made it illegal to produce ethanol in the US, leaving only gasoline for transportation fuel. Who sold gasoline? Standard Oil... who owned Standard Oil? John D. Rockefeller. Who gave $4 million to the temperance movement that pushed a constitutional amendment through to ban the production and sale of ethanol in the USA in 1918? John D. Rockefeller. Did you know the Model T was dual fuel? To run ethanol you increased the ignition advance with a lever where a modern turn signal is, and richened the carb with a knob on the dash sorta like an airplane. To run gasoline you retarded the timing (a lot) and leaned the carb. The gasoline setting produced more heat and cars overheated more often, to all the damn time. People preferred to run on ethanol because it made more power, was more reliable, ran cooler, and they could make it themselves rather than paying Rockefeller.. Nearly every farmer had a still before prohibition, so they could make fuel for tractors, antiseptic, and mix it with easily made turpentine for light before electricity. You could also get good and drunk on it. It was more cost effective to turn your grain into ethanol/vodka to ship it to market than it was to more it as grain before trains were invented and railroad laid everywhere. That was the reason for the taxes on ethanol, and why bootlegging is a thing. I make my ethanol from tree sap. Maple syrup is far more valuable, but I don't eat pancakes or waffles, and I drive my 65 and 70 GTOs with 455s a lot. I get 20mpg with a carb and no heated fuel in the 70. The 65 is really bad on aero so it only does 17-18, but it has a ton of power. I'm doing a more aero vehicle or two to see how far I can push it with the heated fuel rails and EFI. GTOs are kinda bad over 50mph. One vehicle will be LS powered (possibly a tube chassis 73 Opel GT), the other will have a 3800 V6 with as much compression as I can get out of the poor little thing, might throw the GTP blower on it I have sitting around. Then its going in a ladder car like an Ariel Atom I am designing that will have some body work to clean up the aero so its not as bad as Leeroy. Drag is bad for mileage mmkay. I'll be doing a video series of the builds and how its all done.

    Using electric cars fixes air pollution in big cities. Burning a synthetic fossil fuel doesn't. This is all just a desperate flailing by out of date companies to retain ultra-lucrative income sources. The doomsday for the fuel companies is when people mostly just fuel up by plugging in their cars at home.

    The best hope for the economy is synthetic fuels, because ice cars have more components leading to more parts, jobs, failures, fixes etc Big part of the economy, with that said I prefer my Tesla no cost to maintain and electricity is cheap.

    Fast forward 50 years or so and we'll be preach'n about atmospheric oxygen shortages and vegetation dying off from years of co2 deprivation. Right now, our good ol rainforests are actually putting out more co2 than they're consuming. How's that for inconvenient truth?

    I hope something could be done to save ICE vehicles as nothing beats the speed of refuelling compared to charging for minutes or hours.
