Growing Energy

Fields of energy

We are all familiar with growing oilseed rape and sunflowers for biodiesel, or in even simpler terms, for energy. But how about transforming sugar beet and sugarcane into bioethanol, or unlocking the energy potential inside wheat or maize to power your farm? Short rotation coppice and grasses such as miscanthus are also packed full of energy waiting to be released. How about rejuvenating sugarcane stover or even old straw bales to produce energy? New Holland is also at the forefront of research to create a methane/ hydrogen hybrid tractor, as an intermediate step until 100% hydrogen powered machines are available. Moreover, methane powered tractors produce up to 80% lower emissions than their conventional diesel counterparts. What's more, methane can be produced on the farm, derived from biomass production. New Holland’s advanced and efficient products will support you with production and handling in this virtuous, carbon neutral energy production cycle.
