Methodology to Reduce Enteric Methane Emissions in Beef Cattle using Organic or Natural Feed Supplements

The proposed new methodology quantifies the emission reductions that comprise the use of enriched feed supplements that are organic or 100% natural (no antibiotics) in beef cattle which reduces fattening time, thereby reducing methane emissions from enteric fermentation. Additionality is demonstrated using an activity penetration method that is geographically limited to Brazil. Projects would be additional until the sale of qualifying feed supplements reaches 5% of the total market for feed supplements in Brazil.

This methodology was open for public comment from 1 December 2015 until 31 December 2015. Public comments are closed.
