Development of methanol fuel

09 October 2023 – A research consortium has developed comprehensive technical foundations for the use of methanol fuel in Europe. The research project, called "Methanol Standard," focused on studies relevant to the standardization of methanol as a fuel and delivered important findings. The consortium investigated the compatibility of methanol ...

E-fuels are ready for takeoff

13 July 2023 – The development of synthetic fuels from renewable sources, which as so-called e-fuels could make an important contribution to climate protection and lower pollutant emissions, has already reached a high level of technical maturity. Fuels that are compatible with existing and current engine technology and comply with …


Dimethyl ether as an alternative fuel

22 June 2023 - A research consortium led by Ford Research and Innovation Center Aachen is currently investigating the technical conditions under which diesel vehicles can run on dimethyl ether (DME) as an alternative fuel. DME is a gas that has similar physical properties to the liquid gases propane and butane and is also liquid ...


Development of a highly efficient gas turbine power plant

26 January 2023 - Climate-neutral, emission-free and highly efficient - this is what the power generation of the future could look like with a new generation of supercritical gas turbine power plants. The prerequisite is that they are operated with storable, renewable energy sources instead of natural gas and in the supercritical range, and that the CO2 required ...

Oxygenates as climate-neutral and clean fuels

12 January 2023 – The production of a low-emission, climate-neutral e-fuel in a direct production process is the overarching goal of the current EU research project E-TANDEM. In this project, an international consortium with the participation of OWI Science for Fuels gGmbH and TEC4FUELS GmbH is working on the efficient and direct production …

Hydrogen lead project H2Giga

08 November 2022 – At the status conference of the hydrogen flagship project H2Giga, the project partners Tec4Fuels GmbH and the Dechema DECHEMA Research Institute presented their milestones of their joint project "Fluid Condition Monitoring (FluCoM)" , achieved after eight months in mid-September 2022.


Methanol-to-gasoline – a new fuel with potential

25 October 2022 – Methanol-to-gasoline has the potential to become a carbon-neutral and high-quality fuel of the future, replacing mineral oil-based gasoline. MtG blends with 10% bio-ethanol (MtG E10) or 15% 2-butanol (MtG 2-Bu15) are compliant with the EN 228 standard for gasoline and are therefore suitable for both newly registered and existing vehicles.


Developing new marine fuels with HiL testing

14 July 2022 – With the smart hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) tests of Tec4Fuels GmbH, there is a comparatively fast and cost-effective laboratory procedure that enables valid statements to be made in the development process about the compatibility of new sustainable fuels with engine technology - even for marine fuels.
