Biofuels are produced from renewable, biobased materials, such as plant residues. A biofuel comes in various forms: there are liquid biofuels and gaseous biofuels, for example. TotalEnergies sees biofuels as an important part of the transition to zero-emission transport. That is why we support and develop various programs to produce fuel from biomass.
Advantages of biofuels
- Driving on biofuel helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- Driving on biofuels has no influence on acceleration, braking and driving comfort
Application of biofuels
Some of the biofuels are mixed with petrol or diesel. You can refuel this mixed fuel at a gas station. Examples of fuels with a biofuel component that can be refueled without modifying the engine are E10, E5 and B7. Fuels with higher admixture percentages may require an adjustment of the engine. For example, so-called flex-fuel vehicles are suitable for all types of petrol with an ethanol content ranging from 0% to 100%.
Green gas is an example of an (advanced) biofuel and can be refueled by CNG vehicles without problems and adjustments. Another example is our own TOTAL HVO100 fuel where the primary raw material is of vegetable origin.
Biofuels at totalENERGIES
TotalEnergies continues to expand its range of clean fuels. Biofuel is a solution in the transition to emission-free transport. TotalEnergies is currently actively participating in various programs to develop solutions for the conversion of all available types of biomass. We work in our own laboratories and through R&D partnerships with manufacturers, start-ups, universities and private laboratories.
