Forward-thinking vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, energy companies, and regulators know how important renewable, carbon neutral fuels are to our sustainable future.
Both conventional energy companies and new technology startups are investing significant efforts into developing alternative fuels for a sustainable future.
Tula’s DSF control strategies can be applied to engines designed to use alternative fuels, both improving powertrain efficiency and reducing harmful emissions.
What are alternative fuels?
Internal combustion (IC) engines are inherently environmentally sound, as long as the fuels used in them are clean and green. Alternative fuels include biodiesel, ethanol (methanol), natural gas, propane, hydrogen, and other emerging fuels that are characterized by a reduction in carbon footprint from production to use.
IC engines using alternative fuels can speed the transition from traditional fossil fuels to fully sustainable mobility, given the massive investment already made in IC engines and the fueling infrastructure. Regulatory bodies around the world are incorporating the promise of these fuels.
Energy companies and technology startups are developing renewable, carbon neutral fuels to take advantage of existing engine technologies and infrastructure to meet global regulatory mandates.
Benefits of Alternative Fuels + DSF
Proven Control Solutions
Tula’s DSF solutions are proven, high-value approaches that can support advances in fuel and engine technologies as they are developed.
Improved Fuel Efficiency
DSF solutions can improve the fuel efficiency of any spark ignited or compression ignited engine. This means most alternative fuels can be supported by DSF.
Further Emissions Reductions
Increases in fuel efficiency can optimize powertrain emission reductions.
Alternative Fuels Future Market Share
According to US Energy Information Administration, alternative fuels are projected to grow much faster than petroleum in the transportation sector. With DSF for gasoline, diesel, and alternative fuels, plus DMD technology for electric vehicles, Tula is poised to further improve emission and cost benefits for decades into the future.
