Cummins okays 100% renewable diesel for industrial engines
Cummins, a global leader in power solutions, has announced its approval for the use of unblended renewable diesel in all its industrial high-horsepower engines. This significant move underscores the company’s commitment to sustainable energy solutions and its efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of its products.
Renewable diesel, distinct from biodiesel, is produced from sustainable sources like vegetable oils, animal fats, and waste residues. It offers a cleaner-burning alternative to traditional diesel fuel, resulting in fewer emissions and a reduced environmental impact.
Cummins’ decision to approve the use of 100% renewable diesel in its high-horsepower engines is a testament to the fuel’s performance capabilities and its alignment with the company’s sustainability goals. While many engines in the industry can operate on blends of renewable diesel and traditional diesel, Cummins’ engines are now certified to run entirely on the eco-friendly fuel.
This announcement is expected to have a ripple effect in the industrial sector, encouraging other manufacturers to consider the benefits of renewable diesel. It also provides industries that rely on high-horsepower engines, such as construction, mining, and agriculture, with a greener alternative that doesn’t compromise on performance.
