Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


In the Netherlands, approximately 35,000 kton dry matter (DM) of feed and feed ingredients are available originating from regional production and import of feed and raw materials. About 25,000 kton DM is used in the Netherlands itself and about 10,000 kton is exported to other countries. Biorefinery enables us to extract feed components that cannot be utilized by animals. The challenge is to add value by applying these components in various value chains. In this way, raw material components can be degraded, thereby providing new raw materials for the biobased economy (BBE). This study gives an overview of the most promising opportunities to increase resource use efficiency by applying biorefinery technology on feed materials.
