October does not pass without programs either. Organized by Adisseo, we had the opportunity to travel to Burgos with 2 partner companies who already use or plan to use liquid methionine. The trip aimed at visiting the liquid methionine factory in Burgos and gathering information on its use.
Liquid methionine from Burgos
Adisseo has been producing liquid methionine, Rhodimet AT88, in Burgos since 1990. They see the value and future of their work and continuous development in the professional competence of those who work there. When we arrived at the plant, we immediately felt hospitality, professional openness and innovation surround us. On the first day of the program, we got a glimpse of the work of research and development, the possibilities of using the product and the technical tasks there. It was interesting that during our visit not only the colleagues in technology, but also the staff of the back office, finance, logistics and bookkeeping proved their proficiency and strived to answer any questions.
Rhodimet® AT88 is a concentrated liquid source of hydroxymethionine
Rhodimet® AT88 is a concentrated liquid source of hydroxymethionine, which is particularly suitable for large and medium sized modern feed manufacturers and integrators. The efficiency of Rhodimet® AT88 is 88% of that of DL-methionine. Its effectiveness has been scientifically tested in more than 25 experiments, especially with the help of Schothorst Feed Research (2014) and Bangkok Animal Research Center (2013). This value is supported by the breeding results of large users (e.g. Tyson Foods) for more than 20 years. This source of methionine increases the flexibility of feed production processes, reduces feed costs and mitigates changes in stock breeding performance. In addition, Rhodimet® AT88 is an organic acid with a pKa value of 3.40. This effective ingredient can increase the efficiency of broiler fattening under heat stress conditions (Willemsen et al., 2001). Significant – up to 10% – savings can be achieved by switching DL-methionine to DL-HMTBA. We reduce the need for storage space, simplify introduction to the feed, and can forget about the difficulties of packaging disposal. Its application can reduce energy consumption. After obtaining brief product information, the catchiest was the impressive plant visit. Spending a fraction of my life at an ethanol factory with many pipes and tanks, it was not a novelty, but the list and cost of wear parts displayed in the IBC tank building suggest that employees are committed to their workplace and the product they deliver and the company also pays attention to the safety and comfort of colleagues.After the rigorous and guided professional experience, we had some time for a short walk in Madrid, tasting the local gastronomy and trying out the sixth longest metro line in the world.
I hope the journey was an everlasting experience.
We look forward to welcoming you next time too.
