EU approves marketing of methane-reducing feed additive

European Union (EU) member states approved February 23 the marketing in the EU of an innovative feed additive, proposed by the European Commission, which could reduce methane emissions by as much as 35%.

This is reported by ProAgro Group, citing Agriland.

The additive, Bovaer 10, consisting of 3‐nitrooxypropanol, will help to reduce the emission of methane, a potent greenhouse gas (GHG), from cows.

European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides, said: “Innovation is key for a successful shift towards a more sustainable food system.

“The EU continues to lead the way in ensuring food safety while adapting to new technologies that can make food production more sustainable.

“Cutting farming-related methane emissions is key in our fight against climate change and today’s approval is a very telling example of what we can achieve through new agricultural innovations,” she added.
