Aramco and Stellantis Collaboration Indicates eFuel Compatibility with European Engine Families.|
Stellantis and Aramco find that 24 engine families in European vehicles produced since 2014 (Euro 6) are compatible with expected eFuels formulations.
Companies worked together using surrogate eFuels for the testing, according to existing fuel standards, as part of their pursuit of lower-carbon energy solutions.
Aramco is exploring development of low-carbon eFuels as a drop-in solution to potentially reduce carbon dioxide emissions from existing vehicles.
Stellantis endorses use of low-carbon eFuels and estimates it could reduce up to 400 million tons of CO2 in Europe from 2025 to 2050, if used in up to 28 million Stellantis vehicles.
The use of low-carbon eFuel has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from existing internal combustion vehicles by at least 70% on a lifecycle basis, compared to conventional fuels.
