Public Profile

With a very young start-up crew, Symbrosia identifies climate change is the primart threat facing to the planet. Tackling the issue head-on the team is strucrured around a breakthrough solution to drastically - and by natural means - to reduce the methane produced by livestock around the world, Arguing that methane emitted by lifestock will have about 80 times the global warming effect of CO2 over the next 20 years, a critical variable would be to raise healthy livestock by changing their diet - while at the same time reducing methane emissions - by feeding them seaweed. :Breakthrough research has shown that adding just a sprinkle of this seaweed to livestock feed increases growth rate and reduces livestock methane emissions by over 90%. Arguing that while claim may sound too good to be true - Symbrosia personnel ay it is not; that Asparagopsis taxiformis is the sustainable feed material of the future for the world’s millions of farmers and billions of farm animals. To that end, symbrosia is structured around scaling production of this mighty macroalgae to bring that future.
