New Holland’s online CarbonID™ calculator
New Holland has developed a carbon footprinting method which enables farmers and contractors to calculate the carbon footprint of their current tractor fleet.
Saving fuel means a reduced carbon footprint
Consumers are increasingly demanding farm produce with a reduced carbon footprint. Emissions released from burning diesel are a significant contributor to farms’ overall carbon footprints. In an effort to support farmers in facing this new challenge, New Holland has developed a carbon footprinting method which enables farmers and contractors to calculate the carbon footprint of their current tractor fleet, and show them how they could reduce it by replacing some of their equipment with Tier 4A compliant, ECOBlue™ SCR machines. This technology can not only reduce NOx emissions, but also agribusinesses’ fuel consumption by up to 10%, a major contributor to farms’ overall carbon emissions.
Fleet owners can choose to calculate their carbon footprints either based on annual fuel usage or hours worked. Then, they simply input data including their fleets’ current tier level and horsepower range, the price of fuel and AdBlue, together with their average work rate, and the calculator automatically provides them not only with the carbon reduction they could achieve in tonnes, but also the amount of money they could save through reduced fuel consumption.
