Mootral™ — A New Approach to GHG Emissions and Value Creation


  • Mootral™ is a natural feed supplement made from natural ingredients
  • The formula, extraction and production processes are proprietary
  • Mootral™ reduces methane emissions from cows by a minimum of 30%


  • In addition to reducing carbon emissions, Mootral™ promotes the natural and healthy growth and development of a cow
  • If Mootral™ was fed to only 40% of all cows on earth, it would equate to 3 billion Tons CO2e or 2.5% of current global emissions.7
  • This is the equivalent of taking at least 200 million cars off the road.


  • Livestock emissions are responsible for 15% of all global anthropogenic greenhouse gases(GHGs)1
  • This is the third largest contributor of GHGs after energy and industry
  • The livestock industry is more polluting than the whole transportation sector
  • Very little has been done to address this important issue over the last 100 years


  • There are more than 1.5 billion cows on earth2
  • According to the latest forecasts there will be 2.5 billion cows by 2050
  • Cows are the largest source of methane emissions in the world
  • A cow produces on average 2-3Tons CO2e a year3
  • A cow pollutes more than an average car driven for a year4 


  • There are approximately 1.5 billion cars on earth and there will be 2.5 billion cars by 2050, the same growth projections as cows5


  • Cows have a very complex digestive system (four stomachs) which is one of the reasons they produce so much methane, most of which, contrary to popular beliefs, comes out of their mouths (>80%)
  • This digestion is called Enteric Fermentation.
  • Methane is a dangerous gas and is at least 84 times more powerful than CO26 in its first 10 years 


  • Mootral™ is ready for commercialisation in 2017
  • We want to start pilot projects around the world and create a Climate-Friendly Cow label for dairy and meat products, as well as introduce a new carbon credit: the Cow Credit.
