Detailed project

What is the issue addressed?

We are in the midst of a global climate crisis with atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gas at their highest in nearly four decades of records and more urgent action is needed to avoid catastrophic consequences.

How is the problem solved?

Bahari Labs is Africa's first Climate Tech company that exists to reduce ruminant methane emissions by making livestock more efficient We’re doing this by unlocking the bioactive power of seaweed.

What is the customer target?

The potential clients for this innovation are large corporates that are looking to purchase carbon credits, or beef, sheep and goat farmers wanting to sell a more sustainable product

How is this solution different?

Competitors are working on reducing ruminant methane emissions using seaweed are focusing on Asparagopsis, a species that contains the halogenated organic compound, Bromoform. Bromoform, however, is potentially toxic at levels above the minimum effective dose, can lead to bromide accumulation in the milk of dairy cows consuming it. We are the only company working with different seaweed species.
