RESPECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT
All agricultural manufacturers are currently developing engine solutions that meet the rigorous Tier 4A emission regulations, and New Holland Agriculture are offering you cutting edge industry leading engines that are environmentally friendly throughout their entire life.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL PROMISE
But is all this really necessary?
The simple answer is yes. It’s not just a legal requirement, New Holland are fully committed to offering farmers intelligent solutions to make agriculture more efficient and kinder to the environment.
What’s all the fuss about?
Well, everyone agrees that for a good quality of life, we all need to breathe clean fresh air. But the growing population, urbanization and climate change are making this more difficult, and governments around the world are Tier4 to solve these problems. Farm vehicle emissions might be small when compared to their highway counterparts, but New Holland is committed to doing its bit to reduce these harmful substances.
THE EMISSIONS REDUCTION STORY
1996 saw the introduction of the first Tier 1 emissions standards, and since then Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM) have been reduced by 60%. With the introduction of Tier 4A regulations in 2011, PM will be further lowered by 90% and NOx by 50%. These toxic substances are produced during combustion and can harm the environment and human health. But let’s find out a little more about them. NOx: nitrogen monoxide and nitrogen dioxide are produced during combustion when the engine is at its hottest.
These gases are two of the main causes of acid rain and the shrinking ozone layer. PM: particulate matter is mainly made up of tiny carbon particles and other poisonous substances which are created when not all of the fuel is burnt during combustion, generally when the engine is cooler.
100 TIMES BETTER OFF THAN OVER A DECADE AGO
New Holland have reduced emissions 100 times over the last decade to improve the lives of farmers and their families. In real terms, this means you can run your Tier 4A compliant machine for 100 days and produce the same amount of emissions as a Tier 1 machine would have in just one day.
