Livestock produce six per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions through methane produced during digestion.
Our products interrupt the biological pathways that produce methane in the rumen and convert it into increased energy for the animal.
Cows and sheep are ruminants and digest their food for hours, chewing and re-chewing feed that goes in and out of their four-chambered stomach. The rumen, the first section of their stomach, is home to a complex system of microorganisms where a simple meal becomes a climate change problem through the production of methane.
The molecular pathway in a cow’s stomach produces around 200 litres of methane a day, and there are 1.4 billion cattle in the world.
Our products interrupt the biological pathways that produce methane in the rumen and instead converts it into increased energy for the animal.
Supplements we are developing can have an enormous impact on near-term methane emissions while also increasing productivity for farmers and unlocking new carbon credit revenue streams.
