Oxymethylene Ether as Potentially Carbon-neutral Fuel for Clean Diesel Engines Part 2: Compliance with the Sustainability Requirement
- 169 Downloads
The transition from fossil fuels to sustainably produced fuels that allow maximum environmental compatibility is the most effective and economical measure to secure the future of internal combustion engines. The local emission freedom of electrical drives can still be outdone by the potential to attain negative emissions. The criteria that solidify the selection of OME3-6 as potentially sustainable diesel fuel of the future are described in this article.
Criteria that characterise future mobility
