Workshop on Methane, Dairies and Livestock, and Renewable Natural Gas in California
California law requires the reduction of methane emissions at California dairy and livestock operations to 40 percent below 2013 levels by 2030. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) hosted a workshop to engage a broad spectrum of stakeholders on the unique policy and technical issues the dairy and livestock sector faces in achieving this and other statutory requirements. The workshop included topic-specific panels with presentations from a broad spectrum of stakeholders and experts. The objective of the workshop is an enhanced understanding of California mandates for reductions in methane emissions, trends in the dairy and livestock industry, California programs that reduce dairy methane, environmental regulation affecting dairy operations including concerns raised about potential impacts associated with environmental policies and programs, and to hear stakeholder perspectives.
