Rolls-Royce has approved mtu engines for use with sustainable fuels, a move expected to help make the company’s construction, industrial, agricultural and mining customers more climate-friendly.

The mtu Series 1000, 1100, 1300 and 1500 engines have already been approved for use with EN15940 paraffinic diesel fuels following bench testing. This year, many Series 4000 mtu engines for mining applications will be released for sustainable fuels. Engines for emissions regulations EU Stage V will follow, the company said.

Sustainable synthetic fuels include BtL (Biomass to Liquid), HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) and PtL (Power to Liquid) such as e-diesel. No adaptation of existing engines is necessary to convert from conventional diesel fuel to EN15940 standard synthetic fuels.
