Mr. Axel Bachner, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg
Article "Climate design of pure vegetable oil fuels for agricultural equipment" in Landtechnik 1.2012
An executive summary of the monograph "Klimadesign von Pflanzenölkraftstoffen für landwirtschaftliche Maschinen" has been published in German and English in the specialised journal for agricultural equipment "Landtechnik".
2ndVegOil tractor prototype exposed at "Grüne Woche" in Berlin
One of the vegetable oil fuelled tractor prototypes that were developed in 2ndVegOil is exposed at the "77. Internationale Grüne Woche 2012" in Berlin, the worldwide largest fair for food, agriculture and gardening. The German Minister for Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, Ilse Aigner, and the President of the German Farmers Association, Gerd Sonnleitner, visited the stand and congratulated to the achieved outstanding results.
Results of 2ndVegOil project presented at Final Event in Brussels
The final results of the 2ndVegOil project have been presented in the frame of a public final event that took place at the Representation of the Free State of Bavaria in Brussels on 19 December 2011
CEN Workshop Agreement on pure plant oil fuels
The 2ndVegOil project has led to a draft for a new standard for pure vegetable oil fuels that has been formulated in a Workshop Agreement (CWA 16379) of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN).
Monograph "Climate design of pure vegetable oil fuels"
A comprehensive monograph explaining the mathematical model and the calculations done within 2ndVegOil about the green house gas emission saving potential of pure vegetable oil has been published at the Martin-Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg. The results show that pure vegetable oil fuels can clearly meet the requirements of the Renewable Energy Directive and the Fuel Quality Directive with regard to the minimum green house gas emission saving of 60% compared to diesel fuel.
Results of 2ndVegOil published in French in agro-technical journal "Entraid'"
The 2ndVegOil project partner FRCUMA has published a two page summary of the project results in the December 2011 issue of the agricultural journal "Entraid".
CEMA and CECE select 2ndVegOil as environmental success story
The European Association of Agricultural Equipment Manufacturers (CEMA) and the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE) have selected 2ndVegOil as an example of an environmental success story for significantly reducing CO2 emissions through an innovative solution. The consortium has provided a description of the option of using pure plant oil as alternative energy source for working machinery which is presented in the brochure “CEMA and CECE – Optimizing our industry 2 reduce emissions”.
Presentation of 2ndVegOil project to key stakeholders in Paris
On 27 September, Charles Guillot, representative of the project partner FRCUMA, has presented the 2ndVegOil project to French key stakeholders at the meeting of the Réseau Mixte Téchnologique Agroéquipement Énergie in Antony close to Paris.
