New York Times: “The Business of Burps: Scientists Smell Profit in Cow Emissions”

The New York Times released a feature entitled “The Business of Burps” about a company that has created a new feed supplement for cows that can reduce the greenhouse gases emitted when they burp. Mootral, the Swiss biotech company behind the feed supplement, will soon be able to sell credits for reducing methane from cows.

Verra recently approved the methodology designed by Mootral. CEO David Antonioli is quoted in the piece.
