OBJECTION TO PLANS OF THE EU COMMISSION VDMA SPEAKS OUT IN FAVOUR OF E-FUELS AND COMBUSTION ENGINES

With this, the association is countering a proposal of the EU Commission that is currently under discussion in the committees of the European Parliament. “Instead of imposing a de facto ban on combustion engines by limiting exhaust emissions to zero, all climate friendly drive options should be utilised", declared VDMA President Karl Haeusgen. Combustion engines powered by CO2-neutral e-fuels are a necessary supplement to the electrification of road traffic. “ The engine itself is not the problem, it is the fossil fuels used in it thus far,” said Haeusgen.

STATEMENT REGARDING NEW IPCC REPORT PETROLEUM SECTOR LOOKS TO INCREASED CLIMATE PROTECTION

“Against the background of climate change, we require a massive expansion of renewable energy generation in this country,” says en2x chief executive Adrian Willig. “This includes solar and wind power, CO2-neutral hydrogen and alternative fuels such as green kerosene.” These are also issues covered by the current IPCC report. The goal of politics and industry in Germany should be to broaden the energy supply base even further, focusing increasingly on greenhouse gas-neutral energy. “We see the new IPCC report as confirmation of this course.”
