Showing the potential of Formic Acid as a sustainable energy carrier

Hello! We are Team FAST (Formic Acid Sustainable Transportation), an enthusiastic, multidisciplinary student team of the Eindhoven University of Technology. Our ambitious plan: build the world’s first bus on formic acid!

Sustainable Energy as the Standard

Vision

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.

Technology & Application

FormicAcidHome

Formic Acid

Formic acid is an energy carrier that can be created through a chemical reaction between hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Later on, when formic acid is used, electricity is produced. This electrical power can be used towards multiple ends, for example propelling a vehicle forward. To read more about formic acid and how it is used, click here.

TransportHome

Transport

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 is our main focus. Our main goal is to build a city bus powered by formic acid before the summer of 2017.
