This project aims to involve the UK dairy industry with the purpose to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the livestock sector.
The project activity introduces natural feed supplement into dairy cattle diet aiming to reduce methane (CH4) emissions from enteric fermentation by direct inhibition of methanogens in the rumen. This process results in a substantial net reduction of GHG emissions, because of the avoidance of CH4 released into the atmosphere, which would occur under normal operating circumstances (“the business as usual”). Over the 7 years of the first crediting period, the project will generate an estimated annual average reduction of 187'563 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e), and around 1 tonne per cow per year.
