Rail transport

Freight and passenger trains

Rail-bound traction vehicles, which use one or more diesel engines to generate power, are used wherever an electric overhead line cannot be built or operated economically, e.g. on economically unattractive branch lines or in shunting operations.

To reduce traffic-related soot emissions and air pollutants, TOP TORQUE® can be used without conversions, by adding it to the fuel. Retrofitted diesel locomotives in freight and passenger traffic, which operate without electric drive, can also be treated with TOP TORQUE®.


  • Less diesel consumption and CO₂ emissions by ø 7 to 10%.

  • Decrease of emission output

  • Reduction of nitrogen dioxide (NO₂)

  • Immediately applicable in all diesel-powered trains without cost-intensive conversions

  • Extension of the service life of diesel engines

Addition of TOP TORQUE®
