Carbon-neutral liquid fuels, in the form of biofuels and fuels synthesized using renewable energy, provide a route to mitigating the climate change and energy security concerns, which currently challenge the transport sector without the paradigm shifts in vehicle technology and infrastructure required by electrification of the vehicle fleet or conversion to a hydrogen economy. The low-carbon-number alcohols and, where necessary, synthesized and biodiesel and kerosene offer the prospect of continued high levels of affordable mobility through the gradual evolution of the vehicle fleet and fuel distribution infrastructure to one which is broadly compatible with that which pervades today. © 2012 Lotus Cars Limited Published by Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.
