Manufacturing in Laos
240,000 / tonnes of carbon offset
300,000 / blocks produced per annum
After years in the planning AgCoTech's first operational plant in Laos is nearing completion. Once commissioned and fully operational, we can produce and distribute 300,000 blocks per annum per plant.
This initiative provides vital capital investment and employment opportunities for the local villagers and region plus through our education programs we embed long-term animal welfare and production outcomes for the farmers and their cattle/buffalo.
Businesses purchasing AgCotech carbon/SDG credits, plus new investment, will further accelerate our ability to roll out plants across Asia and Africa to those animals and farmers most in need.
"AgCoTech's approach is unique - with a focus not only on reducing emissions, but also positively impacting the social and economic circumstances of Laotian farmers, and improving animal welfare. There must be real and meaningful action to preserve this planet, and our partnership with AgCoTech will allow us to contribute."
- Lance Pollard, Managing Partner, Bennett & Philp Lawyers
"We have a received some blocks from the project and now our cattle look healthier and grow faster. Before the emission control blocks it was difficult to bring the cattle home at night, today they return home more easily because they know the emission control blocks are waiting for them."
- Mr. Lae, Farmer from Nongchong Village
"Rural Aid is proud to offer our primary producers a range of tools to help them get out of a tight spot. Lick blocks are now a part of a Rural Aid toolkit that also contains financial assistance, hay deliveries, counselling sessions, water tanks and water deliveries. In addition to the traditional benefits associated with supplement feeding, these AgCoTech lick blocks have the added advantage of reducing methane emissions from grazing livestock."
