Circular economy on farm land

Through the project CNH will develop engine adaptations, fuelling system and composite gas storage tanks to enable tractors to run on compressed natural gas. This technology is designed to utilise bio-methane production on farms, harnessing the bio-digestion of farm waste. This project addresses a key supply chain gap for high performance gas storage. This APC project has supported Basildon in being at the forefront of developments for an advanced gas powered, low carbon tractor.
