Munich Airport has put a biomethane bus into operation as part of a pilot project. In the future, this bus will be responsible for passenger transport on the airport grounds and should make them more climate-friendly. The “CMF Drive” drive concept used and patented by CM Fluids combines the advantages of a combustion engine with the benefits of an electric drive. The passenger bus is fuelled with bio-LNG, which drives a motor. The energy generated in this way is temporarily stored in a small buffer battery that supplies the bus’s electric drive axle with electricity. The project is part of the airport’s climate strategy, which includes a number of technological measures to achieve CO2-neutral operation of the airport by 2030 at the latest.
