VM0041 Methodology for the Reduction of Enteric Methane Emissions from Ruminants through the Use of 100% Natural Feed Supplement, v1.0
15. Livestock and manure management
22 November 2019
This methodology provides procedures to estimate enteric methane (CH4) emission reductions generated from the inhibition of methanogenesis through the introduction of a natural feed supplement into ruminants’ diet. This methodology considers only emission reductions from enteric fermentation and is globally applicable for all livestock operations which manage ruminants’ diet. This methodology uses an activity method for the demonstration of additionality.
Please note: This methodology is currently being revised to expand the applicability conditions to include any type of feed additive approved for animal use and increase the stringency of the procedure by which project proponents establish the enteric methane emission reduction factor to better reflect the latest best practices within the animal sciences field.
