Methane Emissions Reduction in Livestock: Research Grants
Show close time for other time zones
The Methane Emissions Reduction in Livestock: Research Grants support on-ground trials involving Australian producers to collect data on emissions and productivity impacts from the use of low-emissions feed technologies.
The objectives are to:
- engage livestock producers and build an evidence-base to support calculation of livestock emissions reductions and productivity outcomes (e.g. dose-responses) in livestock, from the use of feed technologies
- increase livestock producers’ and service providers’ experience with feed technology products
- verify claimed productivity and emissions reduction benefits
- leverage co-investment in technologies that have the potential to reduce livestock emissions
- support partnerships between producers and industry to advance emissions reduction in livestock.
To be eligible, you must have an Australian business number (ABN) and be one of the following entities:
- an entity, incorporated in Australia
- a co-operative.
Joint applications are acceptable and encouraged. To submit a joint application you must have a lead organisation who is the main driver of the project and is eligible to apply.
We can only accept applications where:
- the project is supported by your board (or equivalent)
- you can complete the project and meet any costs of the project not covered by grant funding
- you certify that you will provide research data and outputs to the department and any nominated third party for developing the emissions framework
- you declare that you have or will have relevant intellectual property arrangements to undertake your project
- you provide all mandatory attachments in your application.
We cannot waive the eligibility criteria under any circumstances.
