DEUTZ has approved the latest generation of its entire TCD engine range for operation with alternative fuels. This will make a further significant reduction to the carbon footprint of combustion engines and even raises the prospect of running such engines on a carbon-neutral basis.
For DEUTZ, this represents the next logical step in its efforts to develop sustainable and efficient drive systems. In combination with the electrification of its engine portfolio under the E-DEUTZ strategy, DEUTZ aims for the market leadership in the field of innovative drivetrains.
Sole use of electric motors is already a viable option in the low power output range, but for medium- and heavy-duty applications, for example involving construction equipment or tractors, there is as yet no suitable replacement for the combustion engine as the primary source of power.
While electrification can improve efficiency as part of a hybrid system and allows for a downsizing of the combustion engine, there is still considerable potential for improving the eco-friendliness of conventional engines by choosing different fuels.
