Cover Story

In the context of research projects, innovative fuels were identified as promising substitution candidates for today's diesel fossil fuel. In addition, an engine control concept was developed by the project partners - the Center for Mobile Propulsion, the Cluster of Excellence Tailor- Made Fuels from Biomass at the RWTH Aachen University and FEV Europe - which enables the use of these fuels in series production vehicles. This article discusses several results of the combination of these fuels with the control concept.

Starting Point

Due to more stringent environmental and climate protection regulations, a long-term defossilization of the energy and transport sectors must be realized. Sustainable mobility solutions linked to the energy sector play a key role. Liquid fuels produced on the basis of renewable energy and carbon sources offer great potential to reduce CO2 emissions in the mobility sector in the short, medium and long term, thus enabling CO2-neutral mobility. In addition,...
