10/04/2021 Liebherr takes part in the C³-Mobility research project

  • Liebherr researches injection of synthetic fuels in heavy-duty and large engines
  • OME3-5, 1-octanol and methanol show great potential for on- and off-highway applications

In the course of the past three years, the joint project "Closed Carbon Cycle Mobility - Climate Neutral Fuels for the Traffic of the Future" (C³-Mobility) has been pursuing new paths towards a CO2-neutral future in mobility. Liebherr-Components is one of the 33 research partners in this cross-sector consortium covering power generation, process engineering, automotive and commercial vehicle engine manufacturing, as well as research and development.

C³-Mobility focuses on the use of fuels from renewable sources based on methanol and their further processing into other petrol and diesel fuels.

The C³-Mobility project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy under the funding code 19|18006.

Thereby, Liebherr has contributed its core competence in the field of fuel injection equipment and tested synthetic fuels in heavy-duty and large engines in dual-fuel combustion processes, by means of high-pressure chamber and other functional tests. The test results show great potential for the fuels OME3-5, 1-octanol and methanol used in on- and off-highway applications.
