Some want to ban the combustion engine completely; the European Union counts on it with the hydrogen combustion engine. After the EU had already classified the hydrogen engine as “zero emission” a year ago – if it emits less than 1g CO2/kWh – the next logical step has now been taken. This is the first time that the European Union is funding a project of this kind, sending a clear signal to the automotive industry. The engineers at the Munich-based Clean Mobility start-up KEYOU are benefiting from this. They have been working on the development of highly efficient and clean hydrogen engines since 2015 and have already achieved impressive results. The investment of up to 7 million euros by the European Innovation Council (EIC) is remarkable because it consists of project funding and at the same time direct participation in the Munich-based start-up KEYOU.
