Leveraging key technologies to achieve sustainability
We have always considered challenges within the larger context. Today, this means acknowledging that no one single solution or technology can get us towards our goal of net zero emissions. This is why we have selected and developed five key technologies which make up the center pillars of our decarbonization strategy, complementing our existing and always evolving core portfolio.
These technologies are able to reduce emissions in hard-to-abate sectors such as shipping, power and heat generation, industrial processes such as cement and chemicals, which are energy-intensive and hard to electrify. Green engines, solutions for carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), as well as innovative industrial-scale heat pumps, cost-effective electrolyzers for green hydrogen production and retrofitting solutions – all of these technologies give us the leverage to decarbonize industries as quickly as possible.
Our five core technologies have immense leverage to reduce CO2 emissions. With these alone, we can address up to 10% of global CO2 emissions.

5 key future technologies
We offer a portfolio of pioneering future technologies that help fight climate change while presenting significant market potential and business success. With our know-how, expertise and leading edge in each of these technologies, we are well-equipped to provide sustainable solutions to the current climate challenges.
We retrofit ships and plants to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
Our green engines powered by future fuels such as green hydrogen, ammonia, methanol, and biofuels, are essential for long-term decarbonization.
We are also working with partners on CCUS (carbon capture, utilization, and storage) to capture and store unavoidable carbon dioxide emissions.
Lastly, our heat pumps are an energy-efficient solution for heating and cooling buildings by reducing energy demands.
MAN 175D Biofuel-Ready
MAN Energy Solutions has announced that its MAN 175D engine is formally approved for operation on biofuels, effective immediately. This applies to all standard biofuels such as HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) and FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) fuels up to a content of 100%. Crucially, the engine itself does not require any technical adjustments, following the announcement.
Florian Keiler, Head of High-Speed Sales, MAN Energy Solutions, said: “MAN Energy Solutions prepares its engines for operation on future and sustainable fuels and the MAN 175D is no exception. Several such units have been running on up to B30 biofuel in commercial, as well as governmental, applications for several years already where our experience has been very good and shown that the 175D does not suffer any loss in performance even when using these fuels. Due to its state-of-the-art design, just a few engine components are subject to slightly higher wear, depending on the amount of biofuel and the duration of operation. For uninterrupted engine operation, only minor adaptations of the fuel-treatment system are necessary.”
Due to the lower energy content of FAME fuels, the engine’s Maximum Continuous Rating would drop if no correction measures were applied. Therefore, MAN Energy Solutions has developed a solution that allows the correction of the load by means of a Fuel Adaption Control ensuring full MCR power, also when operating with 100% FAME fuels.
About the MAN 175D engine
MAN Energy Solutions developed the MAN 175D engine range to supplement and complete its product portfolio in the maritime sector. In three variants of 12, 16 and 20 cylinders, the engine is available with an output ranging from 1,500 to 4,400 Kilowatts and is optimised for propelling ferries, offshore supply vessels, tug boats and other working vessels. Other market areas, such as super-yachts and naval marine applications, are also served by additional, specialist model versions.
It is also an extremely eco-friendly engine, being designed from the outset with compliance to the latest, as well as future, exhaust-gas-emission requirements and utilises a very compact and flexible SCR system, which enables vessel designers to optimise space aboard to the maximum.
