TotalEnergies is introducing a 100% sustainable certified* fuel in FIA WEC and the European Le Mans Series from 2022

At a time when energy production and use represent 70% of greenhouse gas emissions, it is imperative for major energy players to reinvent themselves through renewable and/or carbon-free energies. TotalEnergies, keen to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, is doing everything it can to achieve this objective by mobilizing its pioneering spirit and its belief in innovation.


“Providing energy means innovating to contribute to this progress. Anticipating these developments means being a responsible player in the world of energy.”

The competition, a performance laboratory for mobility, is committed to meeting the challenge of tomorrow: a fuel that is still as efficient but more virtuous thanks to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Excellium Racing 100 was born after eighteen months of testing and research by TotalEnergies engineers, from this desire to combine performance and efficiency. This certified* 100% sustainable fuel was introduced for the first time in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) in March 2022 for the first event of the championship, the 1000 miles of Sebring (USA) . Designed and manufactured by TotalEnergies, the Excellium Racing 100 is produced from bioethanol, itself produced from wine residues (from French agriculture).

Thanks to its 100% biomass origin, Excellium Racing 100 will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from track vehicles by at least 65%**.

A true innovation made possible thanks to the expertise of our engineers, the Excellium Racing 100 responds to the common values that the Company shares with the FIA, namely: safety, hybridization, lower consumption, low-carbon mobility... TotalEnergies, already a partner and supplier official fuel of the ACO (the Automobile Club de l'Ouest), demonstrates its pioneering spirit and its taste for performance.

This new fuel, validated by all our stakeholders thanks to phases of testing and discussions with car manufacturers and legislators (FIA, ACO), supplies all competitors entered in the FIA WEC, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans. and in the European Le Mans Series.


*Excellium Racing 100 is a product certified 100% sustainable with regard to the mass balance system applied by a voluntary certification body approved by the European Union.

** In line with the methodology set by the European RED II directive (2018/2001), Excellium Racing 100 reduces greenhouse gas emissions by at least 65% compared to its fossil equivalent.
