Reducing Emissions for the Global Agriculture


Anthropogenic climate change is caused by multiple climate pollutants, with CO2, CH4, and N2O the three largest individual contributors to global warming (Myhre et al., 2013). Agriculture and food production is associated with all three of these gases, but direct agricultural emissions are unusual in being dominated by CH4 and N2O.

Food system CO2 emissions are somewhat harder to quantify, due to the distinct processes through which they are generated and difficulty in applying uniform accounting methods or sectoral boundaries. The focus on reducing (to net zero) our CO2 emissions is well justified not just because it is the major anthropogenic climate forcer but also because it acts cumulatively.

With decades of research and ambition behind it, Oxytane® has become an important piece of the decarbonisation puzzle.

Tangible Benefits of using Oxytane for all Farming Operations

"Oxytane solution is that it provides an environmental benefit by way of emission-reduction whilst reducing the cost by way of lower fuel consumption in any engine, with any liquid fuel type."

"Evidence suggests that farming equipment using Oxytane, whether it be a vehicle or generator, will benefit from the efficiency gains of 25 per cent and above - with smoother operation and reduced maintaince costs."

"Agriculture could pay less for fuel with a product that inherently reduces the emission of toxic fumes into the environment. This circular efficiency renders a versatile ESG solution for mining companies chasing a smarter, more vigilant operation."
