The very first stage of the Sustainable Powertrain Tour 2021 will be addressed to leisure boating. The event is scheduled next April and is part of a tour of webinars promoted by our platform, Diesel International, in order to make institutions, OEMs and powertrain component manufacturers talk about the current and future requirements in terms of more sustainable powertrains.
As a matter of fact, cleaner diesel engines, hybridization, electrification and research on alternative (and much less polluting) fuels for internal combustion engines also concern the marine sector, and leisure boating in particular.
Sustainable Powertrain Tour 2021 and leisure boating: some key questions
“Evolution of the species: the unplugged hybrid” will be the title of the event, broadcast in live streaming. The starting point is that IMO EPA Tier III and RCD2 are not enough. The tightening of regulations on exhaust emissions from leisure boats is called for by many to encourage shipyards to follow the virtuous example of on-road and off- highway applications manufacturers.
Hydrogen and electric drivelines are little or more than style exercises, especially for hulls over 80 feet. Is the hybrid really the most available solution to reduce significantly exhaust emissions? And what hybrid technology is best suited to reduce the presence of the diesel engine in the engine room? What if the redemption of diesel is simply… diesel itself, from biomasses or synthetic?
We’ll try to find the right answers to such key questions for the development of the leisure boating sector.
Our ‘sustainable’ network
The Sustainable Powertrain Tour 2021 was created in the wake of a huge commitment for the promotion of sustainability carried out by Vado e Torno, our publishing house. It is no coincidence that Vado e Torno, through the various magazines published, has established during the years some well-known international awards. From the Sustainable Bus of the Year, addressed to the bus field, to the Sustainable Truck of the Year, up to the Sustainable Tractor of the Year, assigned yearly to the most innovative and game-changing industrial solutions.
