Deere factory goes even greener

John Deere has invested €3.7m in a new biomass boiler system at its Zweibrücken factory in Germany – to reduce the combine/forager plant's greenhouse gas emissions by up to 3,500t a year. Replacing a 40-year-old heating system, the new installation includes 6.3 and 1.75 megawatt solid material boilers, which should provide sufficient energy to heat the facilities and air condition the offices, as well as produce heat for various manufacturing processes, including the factory's e-coat painting system. The boilers will consume about 4,000t of wood chips a year from various sources, including fast-growing trees and forest residues, packaging waste and pallets received with incoming parts and materials, as well as rapeseed cake.
