German-Chinese Sustainable Fuel Partnership (GCSFP).
Steady economic growth in China has resulted in a corresponding rise in the demand for transport and mobility. The increase in transportation is in turn taking its toll on the reliability of energy supply and on climate change and the environment.
GCSFP drives the use of biofuels, synthetic fuels,electric mobility, and hydrogen in China's transport sector
It was against this background that Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport, Buildings and Urban Development (BMVBS) and China’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) signed a joint declaration on 1 December 2003 in which they agreed to draw up alternative, sustainable supply and technology concepts for the mobility sector and to demonstrate their efficacy by building demonstration plants and developing and running vehicle fleets.
In addition to the government (represented by the BMVBS), the active German partners include companies from the automotive industry (BMW AG, Daimler AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, Volkswagen AG), the petroleum industry (Deutsche Shell Holding GmbH, Total Deutschland GmbH) and the plant engineering sector (Lurgi AG). The German partners commissioned dena to provide organisational support. dena runs the German GCSFP project secretariat and also contributes – like the other advisory partners – to the successful design of the project.
The China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC) manages the content and organizational side of the design and implementation of the GCSFP on behalf of the Chinese government. As a technology and research centre, CATARC has many years of comprehensive experience in the automotive sector. The remaining Chinese partners come from the automotive industry, the power industry, universities, associations and governmental authorities.
