12 October 2022

Today TNO won second prize in the category ‘Impact Expected‘ at the 13th EARTO Innovation Awards for an innovative hydrogen combustion engine for the maritime sector. The innovation involves converting existing, heavy (diesel) engines in cargo ships to a clean, hydrogen combustion engine. The impact: almost 100% CO₂ reduction with short implementation times and costs! Due to our retrofit concept, existing engines can be retrofitted with the technology and have immediate impact without having to wait for the end-of life of the existing engines. The prize was awarded at a special ceremony in Brussels with wide political and stakeholder participation.

In truck platooning, trucks are linked with automated driving support systems to drive directly behind each other in small convoys. This improves traffic flow, increases road safety, saves fuel and reduces CO2 emissions. The EU co-funded ENSEMBLE project takes truck platooning to the next level. The international partners have successfully deployed multi-brand truck platooning, which will further increase safety on European roads.
