Long-term climate competence: Ten years of bus thermal management
With the takeover of the air-conditioning specialist Sütrak in April 2010, Eberspächer entered the bus air-conditioning business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Since then, innovative solutions for comfortable and environmentally friendly cooling, heating and ventilation of city buses and coaches of all drive types have been part of the service portfolio of the Esslingen-based thermal management expert. The products of the Bus & Coach Business Unit are now in use worldwide. This is made possible by the approximately 460 employees in development, production and sales. The competence center is located in Renningen, Germany. It is supplemented by seven further service, sales and production locations in Singapore, Mexico, Poland, Brazil, the USA and India.

Regenerative fuels: Eberspächer supports KIT research
Optimizing the CO2 balance of combustion engines? This is possible with synthetic fuels. Eberspächer supports the research initiative of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Strategic Dialogue for the Automotive Sector in Baden-Württemberg to develop a regenerative fuel. The so-called reFuels will be produced from sustainable raw materials – for example from renewable energy or plant remains. These are converted into a sustainable fuel with the aid of CO2 and hydrogen. The advantage: reFuels are climate-neutral and can be a high-energy alternative to fossil fuels. Together with the state of Baden-Württemberg and industrial partners, Eberspächer is working in the reFuels research project for sustainable mobility with combustion engines. Further information
