CRC CARE and Australian mineral exploration company Latin Resources are teaming up to reduce methane emissions. Latin will fund a 3-year, $3.2 million project to develop innovative methane reduction technologies using the clay mineral halloysite from the company’s Cloud Nine project in Merredin, WA. The project will focus on modifying halloysite/kaolinite minerals to develop material-based emission reduction technologies, including feed supplements for cattle, spreadable material, and halloysite shale for inhibiting and adsorbing methane.

Commencing in January 2022, the project will be led by CRC CARE CEO Professor Ravi Naidu.
