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 ...

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.
