BiØfil is a world-first fast charging system for Electric Vehicles (EVs) for very remote locations that are off-grid. The system is self-contained and powered by used chip (vegetable) oil, generally a waste product in such locations.
NO INCREMENTAL IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
The emissions created by BiØfil are equal to the carbon, the CO2, which is absorbed by the plants that were grown to create the vegetable oil in the first instance. The process represents the true definition of “net zero” with no incremental carbon impact on the environment.
Why was BiØfil invented?
BiØfil was initially developed as a carbon neutral solution to a problem: a way to fast charge the TOCEVA Racing Tesla rally car during competition in Targa West Events tarmac rallies.
Subsequently, the Western Australian Government’s electric highway plan has a gap of 720 kilometres between Norseman in WA and the South Australian border, which is too far for almost all EVs to travel, for which BiØfil is ideal.
Inventor Jon Edwards and the EV community decided to place a BiØfil unit at Caiguna Roadhouse, between those two points, which means that EVs can now drive from east to west across Australia with ease.
