Carbon-neutral powertrains are essential for achieving climate goals. A willingness to embrace all technologies to achieve these goals is crucial and using hydrogen – as an infinitely available, renewably generated energy carrier that is easy to store and transport – to drive powertrains is a vital part of this. Hydrogen-fuelled, carbon-neutral internal combustion engines offer an outstanding solution in many areas. Hydrogen engines also have a long service life, after which they can be easily recycled using established processes.Learn more
Carbon-neutral agricultural machinery has the potential to reduce carbon emissions significantly in the food production industry. Agricultural machinery requires powerful, robust powertrain solutions that are as lightweight as possible to keep soil compaction to a minimum. This is where hydrogen comes in as a carbon-neutral energy carrier with a high energy density. What’s more, agricultural machinery with hydrogen engines can be quickly refilled out in the field.Learn more
Using hydrogen engines in commercial vehicles is an excellent, cost-effective solution for long-distance transportation. Hydrogen engines are based on tried-and-tested technologies, so feature similar properties and levels of durability to conventional engines. They are suitable for use in all topographical and weather conditions, even in challenging environments. All in all, this makes them the ideal carbon-neutral solution for supplies of goods and materials.Learn more
Today’s infrastructure will need to be maintained and constructed long into the future. To make these activities more environmentally friendly, powerful and durable carbon-neutral powertrains are needed for the excavators, cranes, rollers, HGVs, dump trucks and other machinery required to move heavy loads. These powertrains must be able to withstand dust, dirt, heat, freezing conditions, water, snow and ice.Learn more
Climate change is increasing the risk of extreme weather events. This means that rescue teams – usually consisting of volunteers from the general public – need to be ready to spring into action around the clock to save lives and property in extreme conditions. Only reliable and robust carbon-neutral machinery has the power and endurance to provide the swift help needed in these high-pressure situations. Hydrogen engines were born for this task.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all volunteers with the fire service, the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) and other civil defence organisations for their tireless work.
