New Holland partnership to bring “innovative ecosystem” to Brazil’s biomethane sector
This partnership will aid in creating an innovative ecosystem for gas production, generated from the decomposition of organic waste.
The new ecosystem is the first of its kind in the country and promises to revolutionise its biogas market, according to the company.
The launch of this initiative is a result of the collaboration between New Holland, Iveco Group, Sebigás Cótica - a company specialising in the development of biodigestion solutions - and Air Liquide.
Like New Holland's work with the British company Bennamann, the initiative aims to explore the possibilities of biomethane
production from livestock waste and to simultaneously promote the use of renewable energies for Brazilian agriculture.
The arrival of this technology follows the sale of the first tractor unit powered by biomethane gas in Brazil: a T6.180 Methane Power.
The tractor can use the gas generated from the decomposition of organic waste as fuel, and was sold to SF Agropecuária, a company based in Brasilândia, Mato Grosso do Sul.
Carlo Lambro, brand president of New Holland Agriculture, elaborated on this: "We continue to reinforce our sustainability strategy on the global level, confirming with concrete actions our brand's leadership position in alternative propulsions but also in researching and developing new winning practices to apply a circular economy model in agriculture."
