A Sea of Hope: Can seaweed reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of California’s dairy industry?
Excerpt from article
‘An essential role in reversing climate change’
Straus Family Creamery founder and CEO Albert Straus isn’t waiting. He plans to incorporate Brominata into the everyday diet at Straus Dairy Farm by the end of 2023, part of his goal to make the farm carbon neutral by that deadline. By the end of the decade, he also hopes to encourage the rest of the family farms that supply the company to adopt the additive. They may be incentivized to do this by receiving carbon credits and selling them on the market for extra income. (Farmers can already sell carbon credits if they install a methane digester and qualify through the California Air Resources Board’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard.)
