Traffic with an evening atmosphere. Solutions for the mobility of the future: carbon-neutral fuels with the help of KSB

Full throttle into the future: intelligent solutions for climate-neutral fuels

In order to limit global warming to 1.5 °C, the states that ratified the Paris Climate Agreement are committed to making climate-friendly changes to their economies, including the mobility sector. Previously, fossil fuels that produced large volumes of CO2 emissions were burned. Today, however, more sustainable solutions are in demand, with carbon-neutral, non-fossil fuels becoming increasingly important. 

It's time to step up a gear – for the sake of our climate!

Technical innovation has been a strong tradition at KSB for 150 years. Developing innovative solutions is our daily work. For many years now, KSB has also been active in the area of biofuels and synthetic fuels. It knows the processes involved and can offer a whole host of state-of-the-art products.

Biofuels and synthetic fuels are gaining importance, especially in those industries in which electrification is only feasible in the long term (for example, shipping and aviation).

  • Biofuel is mostly liquid fuel produced from biomass for use in combustion engines. Renewable raw materials such as rapeseed, sugar beet, wood, straw and residues from the food processing industry can be used as basis. The most important types of biofuels are biodiesel, bioethanol, biomethane and vegetable oil (rapeseed oil).

  • Synthetic fuels or synfuels are produced from a mixture of isolated carbon dioxide and climate-neutral hydrogen. These fuels are currently in the development phase. However, they will play a major role in the future, especially in industries that are not easily electrified

Whether you are a consultant, licensor, engineering contractor or operator, you need a partner who is familiar with this topic and understands your needs. KSB has both the necessary expertise and the right products for you:

  • Pumps used in fermentation and transesterification processes operate under the toughest conditions. Thanks to their large range of seal and material variants, our MegaCPK and Magnochem standardised chemical pump series are particularly suitable for aggressive fluids. In process steps involving solids-laden fluids, our KWP series impresses with its wear-resistant design and impeller variance.

  • In secondary processes, our ETA series pumps ensure reliable and efficient water transport. KSB’s Movitec, Multitec and HG series provide the necessary water pressure through their multistage design.

In addition to our extensive pump range, we also supply valves that are suitable for a variety of process fluids and supply fluids. These include manual, actuated and controlled valves as well as those equipped with positioners:

  • The ISORIA butterfly valve is an all-rounder. With over three million standard variants, this valve is extremely versatile.

  • The double-offset DANAIS butterfly valve can also easily handle high temperatures.

  • The KE butterfly valves and the SISTO diaphragm valves are the right solutions for aggressive fluids or special requirements relating to emissions control.

As a full-range supplier, we are able to equip entire systems with the necessary pumps, valves and automation solutions. We provide products to the API and ISO standards, including mag-drive pumps, suitable mechanical seals, and lots more. Moreover, an ATEX-compliant version of our intelligent monitoring solution, KSB Guard, is available to facilitate smart monitoring of systems.

Thanks to our technical excellence and passion for innovative solutions in the area of eco-friendly technologies, we are making an important contribution towards greater sustainability and therefore a better future. Welcome to the world of green solutions!
