German car-maker Audi announced this week that it plans to build a new facility to produce its synthetic "e-diesel" in Laufenburg, Switzerland.

Having already conducted much research into climate-friendly, CO2-based fuels such as e-gas and synthetically manufactured e-diesel fuel, Audi is partnering with German chemical reactor technology company Ineratec and German-Swiss electricity producer Energiedienst to produce a "nearly carbon neutral kind of gasoline and diesel from entirely renewable sources".

The synthetic "e-diesel" production plant will start construction early 2018, with Audi hoping to start delivering the e-diesel by the end of the year. The Swiss facility is expected to produce 105,669 gallons of fuel each year. Audi claim the e-diesel fuel "allows cars to run in a way that is almost carbon neutral". 

The diagram above illustrates how the e-diesel will be made.
