India's First CNG Tractor Launched | Know How it Will Benefit Farmers & Reduce Overall Emissions

New Delhi: In an initiative that could help farmers save over Rs 1 Lakh per annum towards fuel costs, Union Road Minister Nitin Gadkari launched India's first-ever Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) tractor on Friday. It was a diesel tractor that was converted to CNG jointly by Rawmatt Techno Solutions and Tomasetto Achille India.

All You Need to Know About India's First-ever CNG Tractor:

     👉  The tractor will help farmers increase their income, by lowering the costs and helping to create job opportunities in rural India. 

   👉 The most important benefit for the farmer will be to save more than one lakh rupees annually on fuel costs, which will help them to improve their livelihood. 

     👉 Benefits of converting a tractor to CNG for a farmer are first, the test reports indicate that the retrofitted tractor produces more power/equal in comparison to the diesel-run engine. Second, overall emissions are reduced by 70 per cent as compared to diesel.

  👉 Third, it will help farmers to save up to 50 per cent on the fuel cost as the current diesel prices are 77.43/litre whereas CNG is only 42/kg.

      👉 Union Ministers Dharmendra Pradhan, Narendra Singh Tomar, Parshottam Rupala and General (Retired) VK Singh were present at the launch yesterday.

       👉 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 which helps in increasing the life of the engine and it requires less regular maintenance. Also, it is the future as at present around 12 million vehicles are already powered by natural gas throughout the world and more companies and municipalities are joining the CNG movement every day.
