Sustainable and energy-efficient biofuels are needed to deal with the challenges of climate change and security of supply. Creating CO2-neutral transport involves more than developing engines optimized for renewable fuels. Obviously, it also requires the production and distribution of renewable fuels on a major scale.
Promotes the second generation biofuels
The BioDME project will show that change is possible and demonstrate the adaptations in infrastructure and engine technology needed to enable the introduction of DME - dimethyl ether - one of the second generation biofuels. The project is coordinated by Volvo Group.
- Development of sustainable biofuels calls for cooperation between players in many different areas. This project will demonstrate that this urgently needed change is possible, says Patrik Klintbom, Coordinator, Alternative Fuels and Urea, at Volvo Technology Corporation.
