ZELP (Zero Emissions Livestock Project): Combusting cattle methane to save the environment

Using patented technology, ZELP has developed a cattle nose ring that can detect, capture, and combust the methane present in cattle’s belching. The methane is converted to carbon dioxide and water, reducing its impact on global warming by a factor of 85x.
