Biofuel Advances

 

Technology evolves quickly and New Holland is proud to be part of the revolution. As the first agricultural equipment brand to support the full potential of biofuels in agriculture, New Holland is poised to become an even stronger player in the future.


Today, nearly all our diesel engines come with the flexibility to run on everything from full diesel to 100% biodiesel (B100). New Holland supports the use of B100 in all equipment with New Holland manufactured diesel engines, including electronic injection engines with common rail technology. New Holland has led the diesel engine industry in the testing and approval of the use of higher levels of biodiesel.


In addition to extensive testing and development within the company, New Holland is involved in ongoing research in collaboration with Penn State University to put B100 to the test under real-life conditions. Penn State’s College of Agriculture has operated new, unmodified New Holland tractors on B100 biodiesel on their 1,500-acre research farm to find out what diesel equipment owners can expect when they use B100. After two years of use, the tractors performed with no adverse effects in performance or maintenance.


We continue to invest in further testing, new technologies and research in alternative fuels to make the future a better place, and to make every investment in New Holland equipment a future-ready opportunity.
