Baden-Baden – homeland for the CV community
The question, in which direction our indivdual mobility is developing cannot just be answered by simply specifying the type of drive. The central question of CO₂ reduction up to the neutrality has been intensively discussed on the International Engine Congress in Baden-Baden (Germany) 2018. Among all possible technology approaches the internal combustion engine, represents operated a practicable and at the same time sustainable approach with hydrogen-based, synthetic fuels.
To develop diesel and gas engines for commercial vehicles, to make them more efficient and reduce their emissions, the key factor remains as in car development. The high energy density of liquid fuels will contribute significantly to ensuring the suitability of commercial and passenger vehicles for today´s long-distance traffic especially in combustion engines.
