HDVfuel Proposal will focus on the following fuel options: ―Bio-methane mixed into liquefied natural gas: LNG is an attractive option to mitigate the high dependence of HDV on diesel. However, to achieve a significant level of GHG emission reduction, it is essential to shift from natural gas to bio-methane. HDVfuel Proposal will consider the results of the LNG Blue Corridors projects and other projects funded by the EU under the European Green Vehicles Initiative. ―Biofuels ED95 and B30: the use of E95 (95 % ethanol and 5% ignition improver) and B30 (30% Biodiesel and 70% of diesel) for HDV could reduce the EU dependence on diesel. E95 has been already been demonstrated in urban fleets but could be an appropriate fuel for trucks running over short and medium ;
HDVfuel Proposal will contribute to the transition from the 1st to the 2nd generation of such biofuels. Proposals will focus on the following specific objectives: ―Optimise and develop new powertrains (engine/after treatment systems) for the use of alternative fuels in HDV. ―Evaluate energy efficiency, costs, performance, environmental benefits and durability of HDV running on alternative fuels. Proposals will include prototype validation of the new vehicles. A small demonstration should be carried out to assess the energy efficiency and the environmental and economic benefits of the trucks running in real ;
HDVfuel Proposal will provide recommendations for the development of relevant standards, in particular for fuel quality requirements and for the type-approval of the heavy duty vehicles. Proposals will include the assessment of sustainability and demonstrate compliance with sustainability criteria as specified in the article 17 of the Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources.
Expected Results of HDVfuel: Actions will contribute to climate action and sustainable development objectives by the following achievements: ―Oil substitution through the use of alternative fuels. ―Reduction of GHG and pollutant emissions from transport using sustainable renewable fuels in heavy duty vehicles. In particular, polluting emissions below Euro VI with a Conformity Factor of in real driving will be demonstrated. ―Market development for heavy duty vehicles running with sustainable renewable fuels.

The demonstration part of HDVfuel actions will help to improve the knowledge and general awareness of the alternative fuel as appropriate for short, medium or long distance road transport. Actions will also serve to remove the existing barriers for heavy duty vehicles running on renewable fuel.

Scope:
- Optimization/development of powertrains (engine/exhaust/treatment) for HDV to utilize biofuels;
- Euro VI standards compliance;
- Evaluation of KPIs;
- CO2 reduction upcomming standards compliance;
- In case of a new biofuel to be developed – an article 17 of the Directive 2009/28/EC compliance;
- Prototype + small demo development;
- Market uptake assessment/development.

Impact:
- EE increase;
- GHG decrease;
- Oil usage share decrease;
- Market uptake increase.

Consortium proposed:
– SME Coordinator (integration and administration);
– R&D chemical (biofuels);
– R&D mechanical (engine/exhaust);
– R&D industrial optimization (treatment process);
– Industrial partners (relevant vehicle parts manufacturer);
– SME (KPIs);
– SME (impacts assessment);
– SME (standardization);
– SME (business model).
