    As 3rd in a series the Netherlands Platform Sustainable Biofuels (PDB), HAN Automotive and TUe organised a seminar on the necessity for new engine developments to align the changes in the energy carriers and fuel mix.

    Regularly, professional heavy duty riders ask us which options they can choose between to date to green their rides. Which options are available for their existing truck, or which portfolio of options unfolds when considering a new truck. Also business drivers pose this question. In this seminar we assessed existing options and new developments, their impacts on price (TCO), performance with respect to local emission, as well as on impacts on preventing climate change (reduction of CO2-emissions). Where available experiences of users were addressed too. Last but not least, the seminar also touched on new and innovatieve fuel-engine-combinations.
