Deutz approves engines for alternative fuel
Deutz has approved the latest generation of its TCD engine range for operation with alternative fuels.
The move is expected to make a significant contribution to the company’s efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of combustion engines and raises the prospect of running such engines on a carbon-neutral basis in line with Deutz’s efforts to develop sustainable and efficient drive systems.
“For us as an engine manufacturer, alternative fuels are a key component in our innovative drive system mix,” said Dr Markus Schwaderlapp, head of research and development at DEUTZ AG. “We believe that e-fuels offer a lot of potential for running combustion engines on a carbon-neutral basis. We are therefore looking to combine the benefits of combustion engines – robustness, mobility and flexibility – with those offered by electric drives.”
Deutz has now approved the engine series TCD 2.9 / 3.6 / 4.1 / 6.1 / 7.8 / 12.0 / 16.0 under the current EU Stage IV / US Tier 4 standard, as well as all older DEUTZ engines without exhaust aftertreatment, for operation with paraffinic diesel fuels and biodiesel or biodiesel blends.
