Ferrari fuel contains Iogen cellulosic ethanol

By | May 21, 2010
Ferrari's Formula One race cars are now using a cellulosic ethanol-infused fuel. Provided by Shell Co., the Shell V-Power fuel contains an advanced biofuel component made at Iogen's Canadian demonstration cellulosic ethanol plant in Ottawa, Ontario. Since 2008, Formula One race fuel has been required to contain by weight, 5.75 percent of a biocomponent. "At Shell, we are accelerating the research, development and demonstration of advanced biofuels," said Lisa Lilley, Shell's technology manager for Ferrari. "We are committed to technical innovation through our motorsport activities."
