Alternative lubricants and fuels

Cutting CO2 emissions by reducing fuel consumption and friction

Vehicle emissions in internal combustion engines are subject to increasingly strict legislation. In order to comply with the emission standards, it is not sufficient to develop new combustion methods; research into new alternative lubricants and fuels is also required.

Lubricants, for example, will have a huge CO2 saving potential in the future, due to a reduction in friction and losses.
