ZELP’s mission is to foment the consumption of reduced methane livestock products and to promote research and development in the field. The project is led by Argentinian brothers Francisco and Patricio Norris.
What is ZELP?
So far we have collaborated with farmers in Argentina and the UK, scientists at Imperial College, Royal Veterinary College and Royal Agricultural University, as well as policy advisers at Argentina’s experimental agricultural associations INTA, and CREA.
We created our own patented technology in the form of a nose ring to drastically reduce the impact of livestock’s methane belch emissions. Our device can help reduce the environmental impact of the methane emissions by a factor of 85 (GWP 20 years).
We are also working on a certification platform to guarantee the ZELP standards are adopted.
How does it work?
Francisco brings expertise in design thinking, product design and prototyping, and physical computing.
Patricio brings ample expertise in gas knowledge, as well as remarkable expertise in entrepreneurship.
Melissa has extensive experience developing business strategies, and structuring and managing the project until ideas become a reality.
