Joule, Audi Confirm Revolutionary Sunflow Fuel Meets US, EU Specs

Submitted by on May 11, 2015 – 11:27 amNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  In Massachusetts, news arrives from Joule that the company’s CO2-recycled  ethanol meets US and European fuel specifications. No one is dying of surprise that they would do so, but  getting Joule fuels registered for commercial sale is an important step towards commercialization of the technology, and Audi, Joule’s strategic partner in the automotive space, initiated the tests with respected lab SGS, which confirmed that Joule’s ethanol meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D4806 – Denatured fuel ethanol  and German Institute for Standardization (DIN) EN 15376 – Ethanol as a blending component for petrol.

For Joule, its now onto the fuel registration process. For us, we’ll take a look at the relationship with Audi and where and when Joule fuels might be coming to a station near you.

In the overall US market, Joule will qualify as an advanced biofuels (50% or more CO2 reduction compared to baseline 2005 gasoline) — but will not qualify as a cellulosic fuel, since Joule bypasses the use of cellulose and instead uses the same raw materials that plants use to make cellulose in the first place.  READ MORE and MORE (Boston Business Journal) and MORE (Green Car Congress)
