Projects

Fermentationexperts participate in a number of projects with the aim to improve health for humans and animals. On this project-page, you can find more information on the currect project Fermentationexperts is involved in on national and international levels.

PPilow

The PPILOW project aims to improve the welfare of poultry and pigs reared in organic and low-input outdoor production systems.

The Ppilow project targets nonconventional and outdoor rearing systems with reduced inputs and organic systems. Although these systems enable a high degree of expression of natural behaviour by the animals, there are still several welfare issues in organic and low-input outdoor systems that can be similar to conventional systems (e.g. beak trimming in laying hens, euthanisation of one-day-old layer male chicks, and male piglet castration or more specific to these systems, e.g. exposure to outdoor sanitary threats, piglet survival. Fermentationexperts role in the Ppilow Project is to deliver functional feed that improves the natural immune system of layers and pigs to avoid severe infection with pathogens and parasites.

You can learn more about our role in this short film here of find information at ww.ppilow.eu.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 816172.

MacroFuels

Fermentationexperts is engaged in various projects on a national and international level to identify new business opportunities in terms of alternative raw material use in the production of lactic acid fermented feed.

Currently, the company is involved in a project named MAB4 funded by Innovationsfonden. The aim is to scale the production of macroalgae to incorporate the raw material into, e.g. feed and food products and cosmetics. The project coordinator is DTI, and the project is granted DKK11M from Innovationsfonden.

Similar Fermentationexperts is a partner in MacroFuels, which is also a Horizon 2020 EU project. The project aim is to produce advanced biofuels from seaweed or macro-algae. Project coordinator is Stichting Energieonderzoek Centrum Nederland. The project is granted EUR6M.
