Diesel tractors are already in use and CNG tractors may be boon for farmers. CNG Tractor will make Country’s Farmers “Atmnirbhar,” Says Nitin Gadkari I
Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Friday launched the country’s first-ever diesel tractor converted to CNG here.
The government is working towards achieving increased income for farmers by lowering costs and creating job opportunities in rural India.
The most important benefit for the farmers by this tractor will be to save more than one lakh rupees annually on fuel costs.
It will help them to improve their livelihood, Gadkari said in a statement.
The Minister also said, “CNG is a clean fuel, as it has the lowest content of carbon and other pollutants.
It is economical as it has zero lead and is non-corrosive, non-dilutive, and non-contaminating.
It helps in increasing the life of the engine and it requires less regular maintenance.
He further added that the tractor is safer as CNG tanks come with a tight seal.
It reduces the possibility of explosion while refueling or in the event of a spill.
It is also part of Waste to Wealth movement, as stubble (Parali) can be used as a raw material for producing Bio-CNG.
Which will help the farmers to earn more, he said in the statement.
He was replying to questions on when CNG-run tractors will be available in India.
The Transport Minister said the diesel-converted CNG tractor, done jointly by Rawmatt Techno Solutions and Tomasetto Achille India.
This is currently an experimental pilot project, and this would happen in due course.
India is 3rd largest energy consumer in the world but per capita consumption is only one-third of the global average.
Energy consumption is going to increase in the country and renewable energy sources will play an important role in this.
PNG and CNG supply will reach 85-90 percent of the population in a few years,” Pradhan said here in the statement.
This will help in meeting the country’s commitment to COP 21 for the reduction in pollution.
At least 5,000 CBG plants will be set up under the SATAT program.
There is an estimate that about 600 million metric tonnes of biomass from farms, forests, and cities are available.
Conversion of the waste to wealth will empower the farmers by providing additional income to them.
It will also help in reducing pollution, improving health outcomes, and making the cities clean.
The honourable minister also assured that a decision will be taken soon for allowing the retail outlets to sell the CBG and 8.5 per cent ethanol blending in petrol has been achieved.
India will be the number one country in ethanol blending very soon,
CNG is a better option against diesel-driven tractors because it reduces the cost and danger of pollution.
Definitely, the CNG tractors will be boon for our farmers as expected. Hope for the best and good luck for us.
