CowCredits

Nearly 600 million tonnes of methane were absorbed by the atmosphere in 2017 – it is 28 times better than CO2 at trapping heat.

A British-Swiss firm behind cattle food which reduces a cow’s methane emissions by 30% has begun selling carbon credits to allow companies to offset their CO2 footprint.

Mootral has developed the special feed at their laboratories in Abertillery in the Welsh Valleys.

It works by using an extract of garlic in a special formulated food supplement for cattle, which removes micro-organisms in a cow’s stomach that create methane.

Now the firm wants companies and individuals to offset their carbon footprint by purchasing so-called “CowCredits” for around £60 – equivalent to one tonne of CO2.
