Hello! We are Team FAST (Formic Acid Sustainable Transportation), an enthusiastic, multidisciplinary student team of the University of Technology Eindhoven. Our ambitious plan: build the world’s first bus on Formic Acid!
Sustainable Energy as a Standard
Team FAST envisions a world with sustainable energy as the standard, without having a negative impact on our society, economy and way of life. Team FAST will create a system which can be easily realized in the current infrastructure and therefore easily implemented in the current way of life.
The goal of Team FAST is to raise awareness of the existence of the alternative energy carrier Formic Acid. Besides this the team aims for making Formic Acid the safe, sustainable, and standard energy carrier for the future.
Team FAST is a multidisciplinary team that consists of over 30 ambitious students from the TU Eindhoven and Fontys. The team originates in the honours academy of the TU/e. For more information about the team and her members, click here.
Technology & Application
Formic Acid is an energy carrier that can be created by a chemical reaction between water and carbon dioxide. Later, when Formic Acid is used, electrical power is generated. This electrical power can be used in multiple ways, for example propelling a vehicle forward. To read more about Formic Acid and how it is used, click here.
In order to introduce Formic Acid as a sustainable fuel to the world, the most broad and well-known application is used: transportation. Cars and busses are the most visible application for people. This is why the transport sector has our main focus. Our main goal: a city bus powered by Formic Acid in the summer of 2017.
