Low-Carbon Fuels and Propulsion
Per the U.S. Dept. of Energy, the blueprint for the road to decarbonization, and reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, requires a joint strategy which includes ICE and sustainable fuels. Consistent with this strategy, Liebherr is convinced the combustion engine will remain a viable and essential solution to support future powertrains and therefore began developing different engines based on H2 fuel to fulfil the needs of Liebherr's various applications. The H2 injection system is the core technology to ensure reaching the required efficiency. Over the past few years, Liebherr has made significant development in H2 DI and PFI systems which also can support injection of various other sustainable fuels of the future.
