Neue Forschung belegt bahnbrechende Verringerung von Treibhausgasen bei Kühen

[PRESSWIRE] Herning, Dänemark, 26. Februar 2018 – Kühe und andere Nutztiere tragen erheblich zu den globalen Treibhausgasemissionen bei. Bis vor Kurzem gab es keine kommerziell-skalierbare Lösung um den Methanausstoß von Kühen zu reduzieren. Über die letzten 10 Jahre haben Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen renommierter europäischer Institutionen, wie der Tierärztlichen Hochschule Hannover, einen einzigartigen, natürlichen Futtermittelzusatz entwickelt, der aus Obst und Gemüse gewonnen wird. Diese Forschung wurde von dem Schweizer Life-Science-Unternehmen Zaluvida von Beginn an begleitet und unterstützt. Mootral ermöglicht dabei eine sofortige Reduktion des Methanausstoßes um 30 Prozent und unterstützt so die Viehwirtschaft dabei, ihre eigenen Treibhausgasemissionen schnell zu verringern.
