VDMA Agricultural Machinery Association calls for sustainable fuel strategy

The VDMA Agricultural Machinery Association is calling for a sustainable fuel strategy for agriculture, because the combustion engine will continue to be indispensable for the operation of high-performance agricultural machinery. Available options on the market are hydrogenated vegetable oils and biodiesel which is seen as a promising addition to tomorrow's climate-friendly fuel portfolio. Battery-electric drives, on the other hand, are primarily suitable for on-farm use, according to VDMA Agricultural Machinery.
