Backward integration of methionine production in Mobile, Alabama, to save 25,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually
Evonik’s strides to bolster the supply of amino acids for animal feed in the Americas will take center stage at the upcoming International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, occurring from January 30th to February 1st.
Evonik’s focus at the event includes highlighting its fully integrated methionine production in Mobile, Alabama – to be completed in Q3, 2024 – which is designed to strengthen regional supply security and deliver significant sustainability gains. After completion of the backward integration, Evonik will save 25,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually at its Mobile methionine plant.
Gaetano Blanda, head of the Animal Nutrition business line, said: “Security of supply is a top priority for the industry, which is why this is our focus at IPPE. The investment in our methionine plant in Mobile will enable us to become more independent from volatile global supply chains and further strengthen the service we provide to our customers in the Americas region.”
The team will be on hand to discuss how Evonik is “Sciencing the Global Food Challenge”, including its increased focus on probiotics, as part of its commitment to helping the industry reduce reliance on antibiotics as growth promoters (AGPs). GutCare, Ecobiol and Ecobiol Fizz all form part of Evonik’s Gut Health Solutions for swine and poultry.
During the trade show, Fernanda Castro, Evonik’s Technical Service Manager and Global Sustainability Coordinator for the inoSust program, will present a TECHTalk on the “Application of advanced nutritional concepts and technologies to improve the sustainability of poultry production”.
