Biofuel In The Farming Industry
High powered machinery like tractors, combine harvesters and even mini diggers could still be years away from finding an alternative to diesel power.
The main issue causing the delays in advancements is that these machines are required to do hours of work at a time with worrying about losing charge or refuelling.
New Holland Agriculture is the tractor manufacturer which has made by far the most headway in biofuel designs.
Others like John Deere and JCB are attempting designs working on electric power.
Last year, New Holland unveiled a new concept for a methane-powered tractor. The idea is to make farmers independent in terms of fuel supply by using crops grown on their own farms, crop residue and other waste products then produce the biomethane needed to fuel the tractor.
The company claims the resulting fuel has a virtually zero CO2 profile and delivers a reduction in overall emissions and noise levels compared to current diesel engines.
JCB earlier this year unveiled its first electric excavator; the mini-digger is the quietest machine in its range and delivers zero emissions.
