Livestock management: genetically modified rumen bacteria © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

To optimise the synthetic or metabolic pathway of micro-organisms related to methane synthesis by employing modern molecular biotechnology to obtain genetically modified microorganisms. Then the...

Livestock management: straw ammoniation and silage © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Straw ammoniation is a process by which low-value forage such as corn stalks, rice straw, wheat straw, and straw of other crops is ammoniated. Adding liquid ammonia, urea, or ammonium bicarbonate...

Methane Capture at Landfills for Electricity and Heat © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Under the anaerobic (oxygen free) conditions of landfill sites, organic waste is broken down by micro-organisms, leading to the formation of landfill gas (LFG). LFG is a gaseous mixture which...

Methanol cook stoves © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Alcohol burning stoves based on methanol can be used to supply a cooking service, water heating and heating of buildings. The technology can be applied in households, institutions (e.g. schools)...

Micro-algae for mitigating carbon dioxide © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Micro-algae are a group of unicellular or simple multicellular fast growing photosynthetic microorganisms that can conserve CO2 efficiently from different sources, including the atmosphere,...

Nutrient management: nitrogenous fertilisers © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Efficient use of nitrogenous fertilisers can reduce N2O emissions from agricultural fields. In addition, by reducing the quantity of synthetic fertilisers required, improved management...

Off-field crop residue management © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Crop-residue management is an important mitigation technology using biomass, vermi-compost etc. processed under aerobic conditions which is being utilised as a commercial option to reduce...

Organic agriculture © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Organic agriculture is a production system which avoids or largely excludes the use of synthetic fertilisers, pesticides and growth regulators. It can sequester carbon using crop rotations, crop...

Rice production technologies © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Rice cultivation is responsible for 10% of GHG emissions from agriculture (Figure 1). In developing countries, the share of rice in GHG emissions from agriculture is even higher, e.g., it was 16%...

Rice: agricultural biotechnology © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

The biotechnology approach for methane mitigation technology involves identification of rice cultivars which emit less methane. It also involves the tailoring of plants which translocate less...
