Evonik’s customer magazine for the feed and livestock production industries.

The Health & Nutrition Business Unit of Evonik Industries, Essen (Germany), has now published the latest edition of its customer magazine AMINONews® for the compound feed and livestock production industries.

This edition focuses on the topic of sustainability. The contribution “Healthy and environmentally sustainable food production” written by Dr. Michael Binder presents the results of the most recent amino acid life cycle analysis carried out within Evonik.

The other two articles around sustainability are:

Featuring as “Research Highlights”, the magazine also reports on current developments and latest scientific publications on amino acids for animal nutrition.

Evonik is the only company in the world that produces and markets all four essential amino acids used in advanced animal nutrition: MetAmino® (DL-Methionine), Biolys® (L-Lysine), ThreAmino® (L-Threonine) and TrypAmino® (L-Tryptophan).
