Energy from biomass

BIOCLEAN: Using renewable fuels to reduce emissions of climate-relevant gases and particulates in large diesel engines

The results of the study demonstrate that from a climate perspective, low sulphur fossil fuels and biofuels offer a viable alternative to heavy fuel oil with a high sulphur content used in large diesel engines. No technical adjustments to the engines are required for biofuels. However the cultivation of the biomass must be sustainable so as to achieve positive climate impacts.
