I am currently working on employing methanotrophs, the only known methane biofilters for oxidizing the methane emitted in wetlands and rice fields. Rice fields account for a major source of anthropogenic methane emissions owing to the activity of methanogens in the anoxic layers of soils. By the methane oxidizing activity of methanotrophs, the methane released in the atmosphere can be regulated, thus reducing the GHG emissions, and aiding in plant growth promotion of rice plants. The use of methanotrophs in agriculture reduces the dependency on chemical fertilizers like urea as well.
