CNH invests in ecofriendly Nature’s Net Wrap

BASILDON, ENGLAND — CNH is supporting the scientific development of the first viable compostable net wrap for bales in agriculture. Its investment in the Canadian start-up Nature’s Net Wrap aims to accelerate their mission to eliminate waste from the process of collecting and storing crops.

Shifting to compostable net wraps has the potential to significantly benefit farmers. It will reduce landfill use, haulage and disposal costs, eliminate soil contamination, improve animal safety, and reduce the risk of water contamination, resulting in a reduction of approximately 2.5 million tons of plastic waste per year.

High growth in this market is propelled by the general demand for chemical- and plastic-free solutions. Initial product launch is expected in 2024.

The innovation and its benefits

This solution uses biopolymer material made from renewable resources. It holds up structurally and can either naturally break down in the earth’s soil or be composted. Our investment is supporting the testing and validation of the solution. One of the industry-leading balers from our New Holland Agriculture brand is producing all the bales in this testing phase.

This latest investment furthers CNH’s commitment to sustainably advance the work of farmers everywhere.

Through its various businesses, CNH Industrial designs, produces, and sells agricultural machinery and construction equipment (Case IH and New Holland brand families).
