Dúlabio has designed a unique blend of seaweed species that are native to Ireland to dramatically reduce methane and other greenhouse gases from pasture-based livestock agricultural practices.
The independently run research group has found that their blend was able to reduce methane by 79% when given as 0.5% of total feed. In sharing this information, and the first data to examine factors relevant for the Irish context, they hope this will spur further innovation in the work and collaboration that is needed to achieve their goal – developing carbon neutral applications for Irish seaweed in high nature value systems. Their vision is that this application will promote regenerative agricultural practices while creating meaningful jobs that preserve living systems and social cohesion.
The Donegal team creates innovative product applications, with no affiliation to institutes or organisations, working directly with farmers, fishermen, environmentalists, activists and communities. Aligned with all stakeholders in that ecosystem, in building capacity toward food sovereignty and ecological stewardship, they aim to restore a balance between natural and human capital that safeguards our future.
