Powering data centers with fuel cells

14. December 2021 – The development and demonstration of a resilient power supply for data centers with fuel cells is the goal of the current EU research project "EcoEdge PrimePower" (E2P2). The plan is to develop and operate a fuel cell demonstrator as the primary power source for a data center.


Advanced Fuels

12. November 2021 – How climate-friendly, advanced fuels are technically feasible was the subject of the successfully completed research clusters "C3Mobility" and "REDIFUEL". The consortium partners will present the central results of the research in an online closing event on November 23 and 24, 2021.



23 September 2021 – Tec4Fuels GmbH has set up a non-motor hardware-in-the-loop test rig for marine fuels in the EU research project "IDEALFUEL" and successfully performed a first test run with marine gas oil as reference fuel. Over a test run time of 100 hours at a pressure of 1,000 bar, no incompatibilities arose with the materials of the fuel-carrying components.


Emergency power systems need a fuel check

16 August 2021 – Prolonged power outages are not as rare as they seem. In such cases, emergency power systems step in to supply the infrastructure with emergency power. To ensure that the engine of an emergency power generator runs reliably, it is therefore important to carry out a regular fuel check to check the fuel quality.


Testing of climate-friendly fuels in the video

07 July 2021 – A video provides an insight into the testing of climate-friendly fuels. It is part of the video series "Tour de Futur" about climate-friendly and renewable fuels of the future. The video team visited Tec4Fuels and looked over the shoulders of the employees at work. Tec4Fuels employees answered the questions ...
