Driving Projects – we drive climate protection in the transport sector
If all city buses in Germany were operated exclusively with the CMF drive generator-electric drive from CM Fluids, just 5 % of the biogas currently produced in Germany would be required.
As a start-up company, we are currently talking to local authorities and other operators of various vehicle fleets and advising them on emission-free driving.
We are launching our first project with Munich Airport, one of the busiest aviation hubs in Europe.
Munich Airport pilot project
Munich Airport currently operates 53 buses as feeder services to the external aircraft positions. These buses require around 650,000 litres of diesel per year. Since Munich Airport wants to be CO2-neutral by 2030, the buses have to be converted to CO2-neutral drives. In an initial test phase, we are equipping a bus with the CMF drive in cooperation with our conversion partner Lauer & Weiss.
The project aims to demonstrate an environmentally friendly, comparatively low-cost and CO2-neutral way of modernising the fleet at Munich Airport.
Approximately 5 million litres of fuel are required to operate the entire fleet of passenger buses at Munich Airport. This represents a further potential market for CM Fluids.
