The company researches biomethane production
This dung-running tractor is manufactured by the British company Benaman. The company has been researching biomethane production for more than a decade. The whole world is watching this tractor, as it is believed that this biomethane powered tractor will prove to be very helpful in tackling the climate change crisis.
Gets the same driving power as the diesel
A unit for biomethane production has been set up on a farm with 100 cows. Dung and urine are collected in this unit. This is how biomethane is created. This biomethane was pumped into cryogenic tanks. This tank was mounted on a tractor. Cryogenic tanks keep liquid methane at a temperature of -160 degrees. This gives the tractor the same driving power as a diesel.
Less than 500 metric tons
At the same time, experts say that the farmers will get a lot of relief from the cost of diesel due to the arrival of this tractor in the market. In this situation, farmers can get good yield by using diesel in agriculture. According to the information, a field in the county of Cornwall in southwest England was plowed with this dung-powered tractor. Tests showed that carbon dioxide emissions were reduced from 2,500 metric tons to 500 metric tons in just one year.
