Farms 'have the capacity' to use biofuel

Aug 31 2010

Farmers are well placed to make the transition to using biofuel in agricultural vehicles, according to New Holland.

The machinery manufacturer has unveiled a zero-emission tractor that works using hydrogen fuel cells.

It suggests that, by installing small-scale biofuel plants on their land, farms can produce their own hydrogen fuel using biomass and renewable sources including wind and solar.

The New Holland NH2 is to be introduced in Boone, Iowa at the 2010 Farm Progress Show on August 31st.

With an engine capacity equivalent to 106 horsepower, the tractor achieves near-silent operation and zero emissions thanks to its hydrogen fuel cell design.

The brand tells farmers that it is working towards the possibility for them to meet their own energy needs, giving them true independence of operation.

"New Holland always looks beyond the horizon to deliver you tomorrow's solutions today," the manufacturer adds, saying that its aim is to "improve the world we live in".
