FEV Europe GmbH is participating to the project because renewable fuels, as targeted in this project can address the whole existing vehicle fleet and can have a direct impact on the reduction of fossil CO2-emissions for the whole fleet as well as reducing particulate emissions in especially in older vehicles without Diesel particulate filters. Furthermore, these clean burning fuels open the potential for further engine efficiency improvements, which will be FEV’s main area of work.
