Three Government Departments published a joint Call for Evidence on the options for the decarbonisation of Non-Road Mobile Machinery (“NRMM”). This covers machines used in agriculture, construction, mining / quarrying, and machines used for materials handling in the logistics sector.

Whilst long-term there may be other technological solutions, the RTFA responded to this CfE to draw attention to the opportunities low carbon fuels have in decarbonising this sector. This is partly due to the immediacy of their potential implementation, but also as equipment in this sector may have a very long working life, and as such diesel-engined machines being built now may still be in service many years into the future.
