Global climate change company CH4 Global will soon set up shop just outside Port Lincoln in Louth Bay.

The company signed a lease to build its first full-scale EcoPark where it will grow Asparagopsis.

The native South Australian red seaweed has been found to reduce cow and sheep methane emissions by up to 90 per cent.

CH4 Global external relations manager Adam Main was on the Bush Summit panel earlier in the week and said the Eyre Peninsula site will include a seedling hatchery, farm space, and harvesting and drying technology.

The company has a target to grow and harvest enough seaweed to feed up to 30,000 cattle per day.
