Latin Resources unveils research project to curb methane emissions in agriculture industry
Latin Resources Ltd (ASX:LRS) is teaming up with envirotech organisation CRC CARE to research and develop emission reduction technologies using halloysite mineral from the Cloud Nine deposit in WA.
The three-year, $3.2 million project, led by CRC’s Professor Ravi Naidu and funded by Latin, will kick off in January 2022.
This project will focus on modifying Latin Resources’ halloysite/kaolinite minerals to develop material-based emission reduction technologies, including feed supplements for cattle, spreadable material and halloysite shale for inhibiting and adsorbing methane.
Ultimately, the deal reinforces Latin’s commitment to its environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials.
