VM0041 v2.0 provides procedures to estimate enteric methane emission reductions generated from the inhibition of methanogenesis through the introduction of a feed ingredient into ruminants’ diets.

This proposed module aims to revise VM0041 to introduce a module for project activities that reduce N2O emissions from excreta disposal by replacing conventional feed with amino acid-balanced low-protein feed for cattle.


The methodology idea note was submitted by Ajinomoto Co., Inc. (opens on external site). The proposal is moving forward as part of M0199, the proposed Module for VM0041: Methodology for the Reduction of Enteric Methane Emissions from Ruminants through the Use of Feed Ingredients.
