A new collaboration between Durham University, Nottingham University, NFU Energy and sustainable technologies experts Johnson Matthey will test the feasibility of using catalytic equipment to safely break down methane. Livestock methane emissions pose a significant challenge to reaching agricultural Net Zero goals and account for around 50% of greenhouse gas emissions in the farming sector. The aim of the project is to decompose methane in livestock barns using reconfigured methane-catalyst equipment previously deployed in mines. If successful, this technology could offer innovative on-farm solutions to reducing methane emissions in livestock.
