ABRA Symposium 2015

ABRA symposium at the International Trade Fair for the Production and Processing of Animal Protein FIPPPA

By Lucas Cypriano


10:15 - 11:00h - Sustainability and their pillars

Gilson Spanemberg - Apex - Brasil

He explained the concept of sustainability in a broad sense, showing the meaning to have the economical + social + environmental benefits acting together and the action of Apex (Brazilian Export Agengy) over this subject


11:00h - 12:00h - Inovation in the Rendering Industry

Adriano Salles - Adumat - Brasil

From a challenge to a new business. He showed the challenges he faced by his industry with low quality MBM, showing the solution he created: a granulation of MBM, leting it suitable for most of the Farm machinery 


14:00h - 15:00h - Rendering Industry and GHG emissions

Charles Gooding - Clemson University - USA

Dr. Charles presented all number and figures about the CGC saivings that the rendering system performs yearly in US, showing that Brazil may has an even better saving because we use plantation wood to produce steam (not natural gas as in US) and our electricity is mainly from hydroelectrical power stations, not from coal or gas electrical stations (as US). 


15:00 - 16:00 - The impact of rendered products in the GHG emission over poultry nutrition 

Gerson Neudi Scheuermann - CNPSA-EMBRAPA - Brasil

He presented their calculations about the GHG savings per kg of poultry meat that the use of rendered products can do against a 100% vegetable poultry feed. 


16:00 - 17:00 - The green option to PET and Fish feed producers

Jacques Wijnoogst - Tema - Netherlands

He went beyond the ordinary rendering system, presenting that we should not try to dry that much all ingredients we render. Some of them deserves better treatment, producing products with higher nutritional/physiological/and palatability level. That water in some species is also a nutrient, and that producing dry feed is may not the best technological option for the animal also.
