We as a team develop and showcase new fuels and technology through high profile televised racing championships, and are currently developing the use of compressed natural gas (CNG/ Bio-Gas), which is a renewable, clean and green alternative fuel. Project Bio-Gas will give your company an exclusive partnership opportunity that will ultimately assist in the development, testing then lead to our team racing on this exciting renewable and sustainable fuel in the British Touring Car Championship. Both our race cars and race transporter will run on Biomethane Gas, and with our team running on this exciting renewable and sustainable fuel the project will be sure to generate constant awareness and PR for all involved.
Biomethane is a renewable fuel derived from the decomposition of organic matter, namely food-waste, green-waste and dare we say human-waste. We take this waste and put it through a unique system called anaerobic digestion that turns this waste into methane gas, the gas will then be purified then liquefied and in turn will produce Biomethane which will be used to fuel our race cars as well as our race truck/transporter. Any left over gas can be fed directly into the ‘National Gas Grid’ and used to power our very own homes.
Methane gas is some 21 times more harmful when released into the environment than Co2 emissions, however, when burnt in an internal combustion engine produces virtually zero emissions and zero particulates, making this fuel one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly natural fuel sources on the planet with a negative well to wheel carbon balance.
