Marc Marquez Madrid Biofuel – Marc Marquez, Repsol Honda MotoGP rider, together with the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, went on a motorcycle ride through the streets of the Spanish capital using 100% renewable fuel produced by the multi-energy company.
Advanced biofuels, which include synthetics and advanced biofuels, have net zero emissions. They represent an equivalent and complementary solution to electricity and renewable hydrogen to decarbonise mobility and are already available for sustainable transport. Furthermore, they do not require any modifications to the engines of current vehicles for their use.
Advanced biofuels are based on different types of waste, such as used frying oil or waste from the agri-food industry, among others. Thanks to the circular economy, this waste has a second life which transforms it into products with high added value.
Motor sport competition is excellent evidence of these more sustainable fuels, providing learning in the most extreme conditions. With advanced biofuel, produced with waste as a raw material, the mayor of Madrid and Repsol Honda MotoGP team rider Marc Marquez crossed the streets of central Madrid.
The starting point was the headquarters of the multi-energy company, Campus Repsol, in calle Méndez Álvaro, where the 100% renewable fuel was refueled. From there they began a journey that ended at the Madrid City Hall after crossing the Paseo del Prado, the Plaza de Cánovas del Castillo and the Plaza de la Independencia, where the Puerta de Alcalá is located.
This year, Repsol will start Spain’s first advanced biofuels plant in Cartagena (Region of Murcia), which will produce 250,000 tonnes of renewable fuels from waste, with the company aiming to reach a production capacity of 1.3 million tons of renewable fuels in 2025 and more than 2 million in 2030, thus driving this market in the Iberian Peninsula and advancing resolutely towards the goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.
