Effective climate protection on land, at sea and in the air
Whether ships, aircraft or machines in agriculture and forestry: prospects of low CO₂ and low-emission transport must be created in all areas of existing infrastructure. Speakers will explain what possibilities the future holds at the digital congress for renewable mobility "Fuels of the Future" in January 2022.
From freighters to long-haul aircraft to tractors and forestry harvesters: many means of transport and movement are essential for national trade, food procurement and passenger transport. Liquid hydrocarbons derived from petroleum, such as paraffin, (marine) diesel and petrol, are currently still the predominantly used fuels and cause enormous greenhouse gas and other emissions. However, aircraft, ships and tractors in particular, which are difficult to electrify, have great potential to be powered by sustainable biofuels in the future. Speakers from practice and research will inform about technical and economic framework conditions for five days. The sessions will be presented digitally at the 19th International Congress.
Alternative solutions to the sulphur problem for marine transport will be explained in the session "Biofuels in shipping" on 27th January 2022 from 11:30 am. Potentials are offered by liquid gas propulsion systems such as LNG or drop-in fuels based on sustainable biogenic raw materials, which can be used without adapting the engine. Where the journey of alternative fuels for national and international air traffic is heading will be explained by experts from the field in the session "Climate-friendly flying? Biofuels in aviation" afterwards at 14:30.
The course that needs to be set for the increased use of biofuels on fields and in forests will be discussed in the session "Biofuels in agriculture and forestry" on 28th January at 2:30 pm. An engine system of a multi-fuel tractor will be presented, which makes the use of two sustainable biofuels technically possible. Renewable fuels and electrified drive solutions in off-highway areas, which could replace diesel engines in the future, will also be presented as examples.
The 19th International Congress on Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future 2022" will be held online from 24th to 28th January 2022. Together with its partners, the German Bioenergy Association is inviting more than 60 speakers for an innovative and technical exchange of knowledge. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a total of 15 sessions on the topic of renewable energies in transport.
