Battling Global Warming by Reducing Methane Emissions Generated by Cows


An Introduction to Volta

Our Vision

Volta’s vision is to battle global warming by reducing methane emissions from cows generated by enteric fermentation. By making cows release less methane, the agriculture sector can take a massive leap in going sustainable.

Solution

Introducing Volta Seafeed, a fully natural and organic feed additive based on the seaweed Asparagopsis taxiformis, to the cows diet will drastically reduce methane emissions generated by enteric fermentation.

Large Scale Seaweed Production

Our team and partners are developing methods of producing Aspararopsis taxiformis at large scale.

Feed

Farmers feed Volta Seafeed as 1-2% of the cow's daily diet. Methane emissions are reduced by 30-60%. Asparagopsis taxiformis inhibits the binding between carbon and hydrogen, resulting in lesser methane formation.

Farmer's Reward

Farmers get rewarded for fighting global warming by receiving a ~30% return on their investment. By going more sustainable, new revenue sources are enabled for the farmer.
