Methane is colorless, odorless and its contribution to global warming is 25 times greater than carbon dioxide (CO2). Also, it represents 5-7% of energy loss from dairy cows in standard diets, negatively affecting animal production.
Mangroves are notable carbon accumulators, recently named Blue Carbon (BC) primarily to portray the significant contribution of these ecosystems to global carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation.
