Concept methane-powered Case loader produces 95 per cent less carbon dioxide

As a well-established advocate of alternative fuels, CNH Industrial’s Iveco brand already sees some 28,000 vans, buses and trucks running on compressed natural gas, while its New Holland marque is well down the road with the development of a methane-powered tractor.

New methane-powered loader produces 95 per cent less CO2

Its latest project sees attention turn to the construction world with a methane-powered Case loader.

 

At the same time, its designers have reimagined what a future loader could look like, with radical styling and operator interface.

 

Designated Project Tetra, the concept includes a methane-powered engine, developed by sister brand FPT Industrial for construction applications.

 

With a maximum 230hp, it delivers the same power and torque as its equivalent diesel engine found in the Case 821G wheel loader, says the manufacturer.

 

Self-sufficient

 

It is powered by bio-methane, which is produced in anaerobic digestion (AD) plants from waste products, such as food, wood chippings and animal waste.

In doing so, it is possible for businesses to become completely fuel self-sufficient, says CNH.

 

For example, a loader of this type could be used in an AD plant, while being fuelled by the very thing it is creating.

 

In addition, the use of biomethane sees the loader produce 95 per cent less CO2, 90 per cent less nitrogen dioxides and 99 per cent lower particulate matter than a dieselpowered equivalent.
