Development of New Feed Additives
From Animal Nutrition
Another research platform originally taken over from DSM Nutritional Products and further developed by Biopract is based on the HFT (Hohenheimer Futterwerttest), an in vitro test based on rumen fluid. In cooperation with DSM and the Free University of Berlin, Institute for Animal Physiology we conduct extensive screenings of new feed additives for ruminants such as enzymes. Here we exploit synergies with our biogas expertise to the advantage of our partner DSM Nutritional Products Ltd.
On request of DSM this cooperation has also been set up on an exclusive basis. Apart from participating in exciting multi-disciplinary research projects, the advantage for Biopract clearly lies in the building up of new competences, which can be used for applications outside our cooperation with DSM.
