Global Methane Initiative (GMI)

Global Methane Initiative (GMI) The Global Methane Initiative (GMI) is a voluntary, multilateral partnership that aims to reduce glo As of May 2012, we have 40 Partner Countries and the European Commission that have joined the Global Methane Initiative.

Participation now includes the 10 largest methane emitting countries in the world and all told, Partners are responsible for nearly 70% of total man-made methane emissions.

Municipal solid waste management and treatment activities are sources of #methane emissions worldwide. In partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, GMI developed the Solid Waste Emissions Estimation Tool (SWEET) to help cities quantify emissions of methane and other pollutants from municipal solid waste sources. A new version of this free, Excel-based tool is now available on our website: http://ow.ly/6JJk50Hbm0i

The U.S. EPA, in support of the GMI, is developing an 8-module online training course, “Conducting Pre-Feasibility Studies for Coal Mine Methane Projects.” This course introduces principles for assessing the geophysical and financial potential of capturing and using Coal Mine Methane (CMM). Conducting pre-feasibility studies is the foundation for determining if a potential CMM project is cost-effective. The primary audience for this training includes CMM project developers, third parties, mining company personnel, and government officials. Modules 1-6 are available on the GMI website. http://ow.ly/Dfap50FU5Gv

Can Seaweed Cut Methane Emissions on Dairy Farms? Expert Sees Dramatic Reduction When Cows Consume Seaweed Supplement by Diane J. Nelson | May 24, 2018 Quick Summary Adding seaweed to cattle feed may significantly reduce methane emissions from dairy cows Method could help dairy farmers meet new state methane-emissions standards The UC Davis project is first in the world to test seaweed on live dairy cattle Seaweed may be the super food dairy cattle need to reduce the amount of methane they burp into the atmosphere. Early results from research at the University of California, Davis, indicate that just a touch of the ocean algae in cattle feed could dramatically cut greenhouse gas emissions from California’s 1.8 million dairy cows..... ......But there is still a lot to learn before farmers should consider feeding cattle seaweed. “We have much more research to do to determine if seaweed supplements could provide a viable, long-term solution,” Kebreab said. “But we are very encouraged by these early results.”
By far the largest source of methane on this blue planet are the surface dwelling and photosynthetic cyano-bacteria. A new paper in Nature elucidates on the chemistry but the ecology has long been reported. Cyano-bacters are the most abundant life on this planet in both numbers and mass and that they also produce 5 times the amount of methane than land based sources including our anthropogenic methane is vital to understanding the role of ocean pasture life in controlling our climate.
