Kohler Engines joins eFuel Alliance

Kohler Engines is now a member of the eFuel Alliance, a European organization that represents the interests of companies producing synthetic fuels from renewable energy on an industrial scale. Its mission is to proceed on the path of synthetic or biogenic fuel production as an alternative to conventional fuels and, in this way, contribute to climate protection.

E-fuels are produced from water and carbon dioxide, based on renewables. The type of fuel an engine uses is what determines its emissions. Therefore, using biofuels or gas reduces the amount of emitted pollutants and CO2.

Due to the heavy-duty nature of industrial applications and the long hours of use, vehicles need a high energy density fuel that can be quickly refueled. This is where synthetic, or biogenic fuels, together with purely electric or hybrid drives, could contribute to reducing emissions, Kohler says.
