The CH4 Global Asparagopsis Story
Methane and Climate Change
Over the next 20 years, methane will have more than 80 times the climate warming impact of carbon dioxide, according to the 2021 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Methane’s damage is mostly within the 20 years after it has been emitted.
Asparagopsis and Methane Reduction
Asparagopsis seaweed contains bromoform (CHBr3), which is a key “active” ingredient in our formulations. When fed to cattle, bromoform disrupts enzymes of the gut microbes that live in the animal’s gut and produce methane gas as waste during digestion. The net result is a reduction of enteric methane emissions of up to 90%.
Asparagopsis and Animal Safety
Based on the best available science from the US Department of Health and Human Services, the levels of bromoform that could possibly be present in cows through feeding Asparagopsis for methane control would be extremely low compared to other exposure.
Sustainability of Asaparagopsis Production
CH4 Global is working to ensure Asparagopsis aquaculture is sustainable, including tank, and in ground cultivation. The CH4 Global EcoPark™ strategy bases our growth mainly on cultivation in ground, and to a lesser extent in tanks, thereby safely enabling Asparagopsis aquaculture in regions where the seaweed is non-native.
