Project description

English EN

Quantifying methane production in plants

Methane (CH4), like CO2, is a greenhouse gas (GHG) that contributes to global warming. Although it accounts for a much lower percentage of total GHG emissions than CO2, its 'potency' or heat-trapping ability is much greater. CH4 enters the atmosphere from a variety of sources. While the total CH4 from plants has been studied, the three individual contributing processes have not. The EU-funded PaTreME project plans to separately quantify CH4 production processes in plants through measurement and modelling. Understanding and predicting global climate change is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. PaTreME outcomes will support that process, constraining models of natural CH4 emissions and enhancing predictive potential.
