No More Diesel Vehicles by 2050 Says DB

Deutsche Bahn is moving away from conventional diesel fuel in order to be a fully climate-neutral business by 2050.

In order to achieve this goal, Deutsche Bahn is trialling different opportunities for alternative traction and fuels. The advanced TrainLab test train is already operating with green diesel, which reduces carbon emissions by 90 percent. Starting in October, the Sylt Shuttle between Westerland and Niebüll will start operating with green diesel. Further tests in regular train operations are also planned.
