F1 introduces new sustainable fuel to be used in 2025

F1 has released the details of new sustainable fuel that is earmarked for production and use in 2025 as the new regulations and new hybrid power units will be introduced to the sport.

F1 is aiming to achieve a zero carbon footprint by 2030, and by producing sustainable fuel is just a step forward in achieving the goal.

F1 is shifting to E10 fuel from 2022 which will be 90% fossil fuel and 10% ethanol. However, in 2025 F1 is aiming to produce 100% sustainable fuel by using a lab drop in fuel meaning the fuel can be used in the internal combustion engine without being changed al altered at any point. The fuel companies are well underway about the development of the fuel for Formula 1.

“Crucially, the new fuel will also pack a punch worthy of the pinnacle of motorsport, matching the energy density of Formula 1’s current fossil fuel petrols – meaning the cars will be every bit as fast as they are today,” said a statement from F1.

“It’s estimated that there will be 1.8 billion cars on the road by 2030, with only 8% of those pure Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) – while internal combustion engines will continue to be essential to air and sea travel, as well as to the haulage industry.

“By spearheading the development of 100% advanced sustainable drop-in fuels, Formula 1 can play its part in making an enormous impact on the global transport sectors’ greenhouse gas emissions.”

The intent is to create a fuel using components from a carbon capture scheme, muncipal waste or non-food biomass, all while achieving greenhouse gas emissions savings relative to fossil-derived petrol of at least 65%.
