France: Danone will become first corporate funder of the Enteric Fermentation R&D Accelerator

The France headquartered and stock market listed dairy Danone will become the first corporate funder of the Enteric Fermentation R&D Accelerator, the largest ever globally coordinated research effort on enteric methane, coordinated by the Global Methane Hub and supported by an alliance of philanthropic organizations and governments. The Accelerator, which has already raised USD 200 million (185 million euro) in funding, will invest in breakthrough research and innovation to create new scalable and practical solutions for livestock farmers that can mitigate enteric fermentation, which is the digestive process of ruminant livestock. Research will include mitigation of methane via feed additives, plant and animal genetics, methane vaccines, as well as accessible and affordable measurement technologies.
