The BioMobile.ch is a prototype vehicle designed to minimise carbon dioxide emissions, in both its construction and its use.
The BioMobile.ch is a prototype vehicle designed to minimise carbon dioxide emissions, in both its construction and its use.

The BioMobile.ch vehicle already uses a significant amount of 'green' materials, including Greenlite renewable woven fabrics developed by Porcher Industries, which are based on pure cellulose fibres and used in the lower part of the body. The next stage involves replacing the remaining structural components with renewable products.

Biomobile.ch runs on X41, a biofuel made from organic waste. It is powered by a brushcutter engine and its fuel consumption is close to 0.10 litres per 100 km.

The BioMobile.ch project draws on the resources and expertise of hepia (haute école du paysage, d'ingénierie et d'architecture de Genève – University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland) as well as collaborations with several establishments and companies.

BioMobile.ch was originally developed as an energy-efficient vehicle intended for international competitions such as the Shell Eco-Marathon, a competition to cover the most kilometres with one litre of fuel. Over the years, the prototype has been updated to integrate new bio-based fuels and materials.
