3F BIO mycoprotein has an impressive carbon intensity relative to all meat protein sources, and represents a significant carbon reduction relative to the current mycoprotein process.

However, in the process of calculating our mycoprotein intensity, one key factor emerged: carbon dioxide emissions from respiration are included in our estimates, but omitted from livestock emissions.

Why is this the case, and what are it’s implications? I discussed the impact of livestock respiration emissions here: https://convergingworld.co.uk/2016/10/02/breath-its-time-to-rationalise-respiration-in-livestock-emissions/
