Entrepreneur Nick Gerritsen co-founded CH4 Global with Alan Groves, which uses a certain strain of seaweed in feed for cows to help reduce methane emissions by more than 90 percent. Research has found that a diet made up of 2 percent of the seaweed appears to be the optimal amount for cows to consume. CH4 has received money from the Provincial Growth Fund in order to carry out its research and development. The seaweed is seen as having a lot of potential for farmers not only in New Zealand, but globally.
