Focused on targeting methane exhalations, we have designed a wearable device for cattle that is capable of detecting, capturing, and oxidising methane emissions into carbon dioxide, reducing the global warming potential of methane significantly.
Our backgrounds in farming and engineering drove us to learn early on that methane exhaled by cattle contribute nearly 10% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, and the beef & dairy industries still lack plausible solutions to mitigate their own environmental impact.
We believe the greatest contribution to solving this problem will come from developing and scaling technology to neutralise livestock methane emissions, and that is precisely what we are doing. At ZELP we are harnessing the most advanced technologies in methane oxidation and data processing to reduce methane emissions and improve animal welfare, monetising these benefits so farmers make an additional profit.
We see ZELP as a strong complement to the development of alternative proteins. Ensuring Climate Action is implemented in time to meet humanity’s climate change goals is a priority that requires multiple collaborative efforts. With the United Nations projecting the demand for beef and dairy to grow by 70% over the next 30 years, we believe a scenario where traditional livestock products and alternative proteins co-exist for decades is highly predictable. We are doing our part to ensure GHG emission targets are met within the industry until regulatory, cultural and market dynamics dictate the future of protein consumption.
