Sustainably growing asparagopsis at scale

CH4 Global EcoParkTM

We are committed to preventing the creation of one gigatonne of CO2 emissions by 2030. To do so, we need to reach 150 million cattle—10% of the world total—on all six habitable continents with our methane mitigation solution.
10% by 2030

It's no small feat to produce the amount of Asparagopsis required to achieve this lofty goal.
Consider these challenges:

Changing ocean conditions

Seasonal growing patterns of Asparagopsis in the wild

Potential for seaweed contamination
Ocean farming leads to competition with fishers and others for shallow coastal waters

High operation costs and cost of goods for land-based production tanks

It’s clear we need a better, more affordable way to reach our goal
at scale.


Enter our visionary CH4 Global EcoParks

Based on intellectual property for our unique growing technology: These state-of-the art, contained on land facilities enable our proprietary end-to-end processes, from seedling hatchery and patented in-ground ponds for growing to our harvesting and drying technology. And they operate with the minimal footprint and at the lowest cost because we:

  • Partner with local vendors
  • Work with the land instead of against it
  • Reuse water
  • Keep energy efficiency in mind, including use of solar and natural light
  • Reclaim and reuse building materials

As part of working with instead of against the land, we recognize that negative environmental effects are associated with constructing and operating large-scale commercial facilities. To ensure we minimize these impacts, CH4 Global has implemented a sustainable design framework for our CH4 Global EcoParks, guiding the use and management of energy and natural resources, waste and GHG emissions, and efficient use of eco-friendly materials. At the same time, we are committed to contributing to the well-being of people and the communities in which we and our subsidiaries operate.

The benefits of our approach include:

  • Guaranteed controlled, consistent Asparagopsis production
  • Reduced costs to grow, process, and transport seaweed at scale
  • Minimized risk of invasion by Asparagopsis in areas where the seaweed is non-native (for facilities outside of Australia and New Zealand)
  • Lower carbon footprint from day one for CH4 Global EcoParks
  • Creating economic opportunities for coastal First Nations with lands near our facilities
