CNH announces full support of B5, considers B20

By | May 01, 2006
Case New Holland (CNH) Global N.V. announced April 3 that its leading agricultural and construction equipment brands fully support the use of B5 blends in all engines it manufactures. In addition, use of B20 is within consideration.

The statement covers Case IH and New Holland agricultural equipment, and Case and New Holland construction equipment brands.

CNH said B5 blends must meet the requirements of U.S. standard ASTM D 6751 on the base biodiesel stock, or European standard EN14214. When using B20, certain handling and maintenance requirements come into play, and customers are advised to speak with their dealers on specific issues.

"The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) has been working with CNH on biodiesel support, and we see its announcement as an encouraging step for increased biodiesel usage in CNH equipment," said Darryl Brinkmann, chairman of the NBB and a soybean grower from Carlyle, Ill. "Farmers are important customers to companies like CNH, and we believe that farm equipment manufacturers should be leaders in promoting biodiesel use. The NBB is committed to working with CNH to achieve full support for B20, and we are pleased that they are heading in that direction."

CNH officials said they are committed to working with partners to push toward higher-level biodiesel that will be a compatible fuel source in future low-emissions-compliant engines. CNH has initiated aggressive field tests to evaluate the performance with 100 percent biodiesel.
