Diesel fits into the Future

Diesel fits into the future because of its continuous improvement, energy efficiency, and low emissions. Diesel is a key part of our sustainable energy future because of its superior performance and suitability for a wide array of low carbon renewable fuels.

Diesel fits anywhere reliable, efficient, and low-emissions power is required. Diesel fits into the future because there will always be a situation, an application, a use, or demand for which a “new fuel or technology” might not be able to get the job done without a significant compromise or risk. Operators of commercial trucks, construction, farm, power generation, and other heavy-duty equipment, as well as larger SUVs and pickup trucks, rely on diesel.

Diesel fits into the future because no other technology can match its combination of features and performance. Diesel delivers just what we need when we need it: efficient and near-zero emissions power. It enables progress for people as well as global economies. Diesel will help communities meet sustainability and climate resilience goals with reliable power and technology solutions.   

  • We need to make sure that with the urgency we have on global warming, that we take every option to decarbonize.

    Pierre Guyot

    Senior Vice President, John Deere Power Systems

  • There’s a lot of good work being done in the diesel space. It’s about lowering our emissions overall. Everything doesn’t have to be zero emission.

    Ray Gallant

    VP of Product Management and Productivity, Volvo Construction Equipment

  • Climate change is the existential crisis of our time, and we must work together to solve it.

    Tom Linebarger

    Chairman of the Board of Directors, Cummins

  • The low and zero carbon liquid fuels are going to be important [to the future]. We should really consider ICE [internal combustion engines] as part of the solution.

    Dr. John Pinson

    CEO, Stanadyne

  • The future is really, I think, bright for both renewable diesel and biodiesel. To meet the growing lower carbon energy demands, we're going to need all those forms of renewable fuels. So, the answer is yes, we're going to need all of the above to be able to meet those expectations.

    Kevin Lucke

    President, Chevron Renewable Energy Group

  • The carbon reducing power of making rapid, incremental, progress through fuels and through engine innovation will bring us tremendous benefits. And we should do that while also working on the others.

    Dr. John Pinson

    CEO, Stanadyne

  • Our new product lines are driving decarbonization of the internal combustion engine. We are enabling clean propulsion through engine innovation.

    Dr. John Pinson

    CEO, Stanadyne

  • The journey is as important as the destination.

    Dr. Kelly Senecal

    Co-founder, Convergent Science

  • If we're gonna get to net zero emissions by 2050, we cannot do it without coal, oil, gas being part of the mix. We must use those technologies to keep people employed, to clean up and to remain energy independent.
