As part of the first pilot of Spintone CO2, multiple Spintone containers have been installed at dairy farmers. Test results indicate a high volume of CH4 intake and negative emissions.
Cause of climate change
Climate change is usually associated with CO2 as its cause. But CO2 is not the only greenhouse gas with emissions. Another greenhouse gas whose concentration increases sharply is Methane (CH4).
Methane (CH4) is a very powerful greenhouse gas and holds holds 25 times more heat than the same amount CO2. To visualize the effect on climate change emissions are expressed in so-called CO2 equivalents “CO2 (e)“. One kilogram of Methane (CH4) the same effect as about 25 kilos of CO2.
The creation of Methane
Methane (CH4) is naturally produced by bacteria in the decomposition of dead plants and animals. Methane (CH4) producing bacteria, among other things, in the rumen of cows. Because one eating more and more meat worldwide, this has a great effect effect on the amount of methane released into the air. The emission of methane (CH4) is responsible for 49% of greenhouse gas emissions from (milk) livestock farming, expressed in CO2 equivalents.
Greenhouse gas emissions from (dairy) livestock farming is increased in recent years, but as a result of the Paris climate agreement must be substantially reduced. The target in the Netherlands according to the climate agreement is 1 million tons of CO2 reduction, which equals 40,000 tons of CH4 stable housekeeping.
From methane to energy
Spintone farmers obtain Nano Carbon product (NCP) capacitors produced from their Methane (CH4), available in huge amounts. Spintone is partnering its technology and ecosystem of partners in stables of (dairy) livestock farms:
- Attract the Methane (CH4)
- Separate the atoms
- Convert the Carbon atoms (C) into Nano Carbon products (NCP)
- Position the Nano Carbon products (NCP) on carrier
- The carrier is applied to the Spintone Nano Carbon collector (NCC)
These “NCP capacitors” have a groundbreaking electrical charge, produced from greenhouse gases and will supply our current generation of accumulators.
