New project I+D+i “Improvement of lipid final products obtained from animal products for the supply to the local livestock industry”

Project financed by la Medida 16.01.01 (Cooperation for the innovation) through the Rural Development Programme of Catalonia 2014-2020.

Order ARP/258/2015, dated 17th August which establishes the legal bases of cooperation grants for the innovation through promoting the creation of Operational Groups of the European Innovation Partnership with regard to agricultural productivity and sustainability and the carrying out of innovative pilot projects by these groups, and the ones belonging to 2015 are convened.

PROJECT TITLE:
Improvement of lipid final products (fats), obtained from animal by-products for their supply to the local livestock industry

SUMMARY:
The format of the fats obtained from SANDACH will be modified and improved until achieving solid or semi-solid consistencies, which can be produced at pilot plant scale, obtaining a new product that can be supplied directly to small farmers so that they can manufacture their own compound feed at a small scale, using them as calorie intake and improving the traceability of the animal feed.

At present, this is not possible since small farmers do not have means to process liquid clarified fats.

GOALS:
Improving lipid final products (clarified fats) obtained from animal by-products (SANDACH type 3) for their supply to the local livestock industry.

The technical objectives consist of obtaining new improved formats, solids or fats, from the lipid material coming from SANDACH, studying the palatability and the nutritional value of the new formats obtained and optimising, at a pilot plant scale, the preparation process of the best formats obtained.

Members of the Grupos Operativos:

  • CAL CIRERA DE PINÓS, SL
  • COPECINTER, SA
  • CENTRE DE DESENVOLUPAMENTS BIOTECNOLÒGICS I AGROALIMENTARIS
  • ASOCIACIÓN NACIONAL DE INTDUSTRIAS TRANSFORMADORAS DE GRASAS Y PRODUCTOS ANIMALES

RESULTS:
It has been obtained a new format of fat of semisolid consistency from the lipid material coming from SANDACH3, which could be supplied to livestock industry for the manufacturing of compound feed at a small scale.
