SEASOLUTIONS WEBINAR: Methane reduction from ruminants through use of seaweeds and seaweed bioactives

Event Time 2pm
Venue Online

The aim of Seasolutions is to evaluate the effects of native, sustainable seaweeds on total methane gas production by characterising seaweeds and their actives and using different in vitro rumen fluid models and animal trials in sheep, cattle and dairy cows. The project also looks at how processing of seaweeds impacts on bioactivity and ability to reduce methane and the impact of feeding seaweeds on meat and milk quality.

The SEASOLUTIONS PROJECT is committed to making a positive impact on methane emissions in agriculture by positively effecting the rumen and rumen microbiota using seaweeds and seaweed-derived ingredients to reduce methane emissions and improve ruminant health. Partners include Teagasc and IT Sligo (IRE), AAFC (Canada), FLI (Germany), SLU and KTH (Sweden), NIBIO and SINTEF (Norway) and AFBI and QUB (Northern Ireland).

This Seasolutions webinar will be hosted by Teagasc. The event will present data from each of the five working groups of the project with speakers from national and international partners. Topics covered will include bioactives with potential to reduce methane gas in vitro and in vivo and initial results from preliminary animal trials.
