As the livestock sector seeks to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, efforts to identify greenhouse gas emission mitigation opportunities have accelerated. A new industry of feed additives and concentrates claiming to reduce emissions is rapidly expanding. Yet, skepticism remains, and a lack of user-friendly synthesis of existing research has left investors and policy makers without a clear indication of feed additives’ potential. Are additives that mitigate methane available or effective? Are there any associated constraints or risks? Are they scalable?
This webinar brings together experts and industry stakeholders to address the evidence and discuss the role of additives in mitigation strategies for livestock and opportunities for scaling feed additives. The evidence review is based on an in-depth assessment of leading compounds studied for their efficacy to mitigate methane emissions in ruminant livestock. The report is a concise resource that can guide investment and management decisions by all actors in the livestock supply chain and inform policymakers, industry investors and feed industry advisers on the effectiveness, applicability, and broader commercial issues surrounding methane reducing feed additives.
