Fortaco Technology is now Zero Emission Solutions

„When starting my first job in Isuzu Motors in Japan as a diesel engine control system engineer, I was excited to develop solutions that reduce CO2 and other emissions.

Today, the ambition level is even higher – together with my colleagues in Fortaco we are developing zero emission solutions.“ – Rafal Sornek
