Bayer, GenZero and Shell Launch Program to Address Emissions from Rice Farming
Life science company Bayer, decarbonization solutions-focused investment platform GenZero and Shell subsidiary Shell Energy India Private Limited announced the launch of a new collaboration aimed at addressing methane emissions from rice farming.
According to World Bank estimates, rice is responsible for 10% of global methane emissions. Rapid reduction in methane emissions is seen as one of the most effective near-term actions that can be taken in order to help achieve the global climate goal to limit warming to 1.5°C. Methane is an extremely potent greenhouse gas, with as much as 80x the warming power of CO2.
