CNH invests in ecofriendly bale storage innovator Nature's Net Wrap


CNH invests in ecofriendly bale storage innovator Nature's Net Wrap

Basildon, January 23, 2024

CNH, through our investment arm CNH Ventures, is supporting the scientific development of the first viable compostable net wrap for bales in agriculture. Our 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.

Baling in brief

When crop is cut, it is baled so that it can be transported and stored. Today, bales are held together with twine, wire, netting, or plastic wrap ? all of which eventually end up in landfills or incinerators. Farmers are limited in the reuse or recycling of plastic wraps or nets, negatively impacting their environmental footprint.

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.
