The FIA wants to be net zero by 2030
First barrels of 100 % sustainable fuel made from bio waste are being tested by engine manufacturers to run in Formula 1 cars
The development of the second-generation biofuel variety, which is exclusively refined using bio-waste, not intended for human or animal consumption is all part of the FIA’s ambitious environmental strategy to become carbon neutral in 2021 en route to becoming net zero by 2030.
The FIA has developed the fuel to show that the technology works and to lead the way for F1 suppliers to develop their own fuels.
Jean Todt, FIA President, said: “FIA takes its responsibility in leading motor sport and mobility into a low carbon future to reduce the environmental impacts of our activities and contribute to a greener planet. By developing fuel made from bio waste that can power Formula 1, we are taking a new step forward. With the support of the world’s leading energy companies, we can combine the best technological and environmental performance.”
