CNH, through their investment arm, CNH Ventures is supporting the scientific development of the first viable compostable net wrap for bales in agriculture
Shifting to compostable net wraps has the potential to significantly benefit farmers by reducing landfill use, haulage and disposal costs, eliminating soil contamination, improving animal safety, and reducing the risk of water contamination, thus resulting in a reduction of approximately 2.5 million tons of plastic waste per year.
CNH's 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. This solution uses biopolymer material made from renewable resources, which holds up structurally and can either naturally break down in the earth’s soil or be composted.
The investment is supporting the testing and validation of the solution. One of the industry-leading balers from the company's 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.
