Climate start-up CH4 Global has been named as one of America’s Top GreenTech Companies by TIME Magazine for its methane-reducing cattle feed supplement. 

CH4 Global was one of 250 companies selected in the inaugural GreenTech rankings prepared by TIME and Statista. Candidates were evaluated based on their positive environmental impact, financial strength, and innovative ability.

The distinction comes just weeks after CH4 Global completed the first commercial deliveries of its Methane Tamer cattle feed supplement to a feedlot at Warnertown, south of Port Pirie. In January, the company began construction in Australia of what will be the world’s first commercial-scale facility for growing Asparagopsis seaweed, the main ingredient in Methane Tamer.

“This recognition from TIME Magazine is a landmark achievement for CH4 Global and a strong validation of our commitment to pioneering sustainable solutions,” said CH4 Global CEO, Dr Steve Meller. “Our team is proud to lead the charge in reducing methane emissions and contributing to the global effort to mitigate climate change.”

With production bases in Australia and New Zealand, CH4 Global has an administrative head office in Nevada. The company is currently encouraging the US Congress to pass the Innovative FEED Act, which would streamline the process for bringing Methane Tamer to the U.S market.

Beyond the US and ANZ, the company announced a partnership with CH4 Global South Korean agricultural supply chain brand Lotte International to provide its up to four million cattle with the feed supplement, with the target set for 2025.

Agriculture is seen as the largest human-made source of methane emissions, with cattle making the largest contribution. CH4 Global claims its feed supplement can reduce enteric methane emissions by up to 90 per cent.
