Reduced emissions, sustainable food
Feed represents approximately 60% of production costs and typically contributes 80% of the footprint of animal production. Improving feed digestibility and reducing feed conversion ratio is one of the major levers of sustainable animal production.
In addition to lessening the strain on land use, this approach reduces the indirect GHG emissions associated with animal production (emissions associated with the crops grown for feed production).
Feed enzymes improve feed digestibility. By unlocking the nutrient potential of feed raw materials, we can get more out of less feed. This hugely reduces the environmental impact of animal production, especially with regard to GHG emissions and nitrogen and phosphorus levels in manure and subsequent release to the environment.
Our innovative feed additives portfolio includes novel technologies that significantly reduce direct methane emissions from cows, and solutions that help extract more nutrition from less feed while reducing the flow of nitrogen and phosphorus to the environment – key issues with regards to land and water eutrophication and biodiversity loss.
