Saving Energy with Liquid Methionine when pelletizing
In the feed mill, pellet production is one of the most energy consuming steps; therefore, any potential area of optimization is beneficial to pursue.
Adisseo’s recent studies have shown that the addition of a liquid source of methionine (D,L-HMTBA) may lead to power savings of up to 7% compared to the powder form (D,L-Met) when pelletizing.
