Tupy joins alliance to develop hydrogen-powered engines


March 2, 2022

Integrating Allianz Wasserstoffmottor is part of the Company’s strategy to foster decarbonization research and development

Joinville, March 2022 – Decarbonization goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions involve various technological routes. As a result, Tupy has invested in R&D and in several partnerships. The Company now integrates Allianz Wasserstoffmotor. The global alliance gathers industries and researchers with a common purpose – to support research and development of hydrogen-powered engines and engage in dialogues with civil society and government about how to promote the technology.

“Hydrogen-powered engine is a promising alternative for propulsion. Besides being carbon neutral, it is a low-cost and highly durable technology with the potential to refuel faster. Tupy wants to combine its technical expertise and the major breakthroughs of its Research and Development (R&D) team with the vision of international partners, so as to foster the development of an adequate energy transition technology to be used in different applications and regions,” highlights André Ferrarese, officer at Tupy Tech.

The Company is also a member of the Brazilian Hydrogen Association (ABH2) and helps it foster the development of innovative science and technology studies and research to strengthen the Brazilian hydrogen industry.

Another important initiative announced last year is the partnership with Westport Fuel Systems and AVL, to develop a highly efficient internal combustion engine powered by hydrogen (H2) for cargo transportation.
