Fuel savings & emissions reduction in agricultural practices

Hardly any topic attracts more attention and emotions than climate protection in politics and society nowadays. The ag machinery industry is committed to deliver solutions that are measurable and provide benefits for agriculture and citizens in the EU.

Over the past two years, the prominent research project ‘EKoTech’ looked at how to improve fuel efficiency along the agricultural production process. The project has gathered scientists, industry experts and trade associations from all over Europe. Results demonstrate how efficient process solutions reduce fuel use during agricultural practices, driving continuous CO2 reductions.

The EKoTech high-level symposium "Efficient fuel use in ag machinery" will present how the situation looks like today and what developments await us tomorrow. Industry leaders, top experts and policy-makers will join to share its views on this key topic.
