Burger King is trying to reduce the methane waste its cows emit by tweaking the animals’ diet. What it does is to add lemongrass to the cattle feed.

The new food formula is the joint effort of Burger King and experts from the Autonomous University of Mexico State and the University of California, Davis.

Methane plays an important role in greenhouse gases. It’s also the chief ingredient in natural gases. A large amount of methane can be found in landfills where human garbage decays and emits the gas along with carbon dioxide.

The gas is also produced in agriculture, natural gas, and petroleum industry.

Burger King has been struggling in the last few years to gain market shares from other fast-food chains while the whole fast food industry loses shares to casual restaurants.

To fight back, the chain vows to eliminate all artificial ingredients by 2020, and the effort to reduce digestive gas or methane is the latest project added to the mix.

The experts involved in this plan have been looking into cows’ methane waste for a long time and they said apart from lemongrass, seaweed is another possible substitute.
