Feed additive solutions for reducing emissions in livestock and poultry production. 

Governments worldwide are being urged to take steps to slow global warming, citing that without adopting major changes, an increasing global temperature will threaten food security and produce many adverse environmental and societal consequences. With the belief that production agriculture greatly contributes to greenhouse gas production, consumers are looking to animal protein producers to adopt sustainable practices and reduce livestock and poultry emissions. In this seminar, presentations will explore the role feed additives can play in improving public perceptions, reducing emissions, strengthening gut health and promoting feed efficiency.

What you’ll learn about at the event:

- The role gut health plays in reducing livestock and poultry emissions
- How feed additive solutions can be used to reduce emissions
- Which additive categories promote sustainability through emission reductions
- Practical feeding and formulation tips for improved feed efficiency

You need to register separately for the Feed Strategy Conference. Please note that you also need to register for the exhibition. You can do that here.

The smart way of odor control - COPLAS your process instead of buying your neighbor's property. 6/13/2019

Time: Speaker: Topic: 
16:15 - 17:00 Lars Kükenshöner The smart way of odor control - COPLAS

"Industrial odour control is becoming increasingly important for companies. The reason for this is twofold: On the one hand, strict laws on odour emissions are issued in more and more countries and on the other hand, it is much easier for residents to file complaint procedures at local authorities. As a result, authorities impose terms and restrictions on odour emissions of manufacturers and require investing into special technology for odour abatement. Riedel's COPLAS clean system eliminates odours without the need of water / chemicals and also without producing waste and can therefore be considered as best available technology. Thanks to its small footprint and modular design the COPLAS clean technology can easily be integrated into existing production processes and therefore overcome the disadvantages of traditional odour control systems."
