Uzwil (Switzerland), Quakenbrück (Germany), January 11, 2021 – Bühler AG announces strategic partnership with the DIL Deutsches Institut für Lebensmitteltechnik e. V. to work together on the next generation of extruded meat substitutes. Swiss technology group Bühler AG and the DIL Deutsches Institut for Lebensmitteltechnik e. V., a research institute focusing on food technology and food science, have teamed up to develop new production technologies for healthy and sustainable food products, focusing on alternative proteinbased products with a lower environmental impact than the CO2-heavy meat value chain. Living within our planetary boundaries. By 2050, in order to meet the needs of the world’s growing population, we will have to produce more food from 35% less agricultural land. With an additional 250 million metric tons of protein required per year, the pressure on alternatives to animal-based proteins is mounting. Given the environmental impact of the current system, there is growing consensus that the food industry must change course immediately. The change is already underway in many parts of the food value chain, but to drive it faster, partnerships are essential. Announcing a new strategic partnership between Bühler AG and DIL, Ian Roberts, Chief Technology Officer, Bühler, said: “If we are to feed 10 billion people in 2050 and if we are to be able to do this and mitigate the climate change increase that we currently see, we need to build strong partnerships with purpose and we need to build those in areas where we can drive major impact.”

JANUARY 21, 2021| Zoetis has expanded its line of recombinant vector vaccines with the launch of Poulvac Procerta HVT-IBD, which provides early protection against the contemporary infectious bursal disease (IBD) viruses confronting U.S. broilers. “Poulvac Procerta HVT-IBD is a valuable tool for managing IBD due to the level of protection it

provides and because of its early protection against IBD viruses, including the predominant AL2 variant,” said Angela Hartman, PhD, senior principal scientist at Zoetis and project team leader for development of the vaccine. Kalen Cookson, DVM, director of clinical research, Zoetis, explained that early protection

is essential because IBD, which remains a leading disease challenge for the poultry industry, tends to affect younger birds and is highly immunosuppressive. Closes gap in protection “The younger the bird, the more severe the immunosuppression. Immunosuppression may predispose birds to costly secondary infections — a greater concern now that nearly 60% of U.S. flocks are raised without antibiotics,” Cookson explained. By providing early immunity, the veterinarian added, Poulvac Procerta HVT-IBD closes a gap in immunity. “Maternal antibodies passed from immunized broiler breeders to broilers start to wane at about 14 days of age. Using Poulvac Procerta HVT-IBD closes the gap between passive immunity provided by hens and active immunity initiated by vaccination,” he said.

Jan.13, 2021 | Team 4ForFarmers, one of the teams that devised a solution to ForFarmers’ sustainable business problem, was awarded the most points by the jury and won the title of ‘the most promising idea’ of the Sustainable Business Challenge 2020 (SBC).The winning team was announced in midDecember. In total, fifteen teams of students worked to find innovative solutions to sustainable business problems at the companies Alliander, Engie, Grolsch, Waternet and ForFarmers. Coronavirus added an extra layer of difficulty to the Challenge because everything had to be done online. The quality of the ideas was nevertheless high. It was a thrilling final, during which the jury praised the ForFarmers team for their creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. BrainteaserThe assignment for the ForFarmers teams was to brainstorm how ForFarmers could utilise the energy generated by farmers on their farms in the ForFarmers production process. This was a real brainteaser because the process of manufacturing a pellet is much more complex than it seems. The winning ideaNow the hectic holiday period is over, Max Dekker, captain of the winning team looks back on the challenge: “We invented a mobile pellet press. The final step in the production of pellets is not carried out in the plant, but on the farmer's land, where we use the renewable energy that is generated on site. Although the ForFarmers jury had doubts about the feasibility, they were very enthusiastic about our original approach to the problem. We thought long and hard about all the shortcomings of our idea. During the final, we were therefore able to respond to all the questions with solid arguments.” PassionMax found participating in the Challenge an enlightening experience. “It's interesting to immerse yourself in something you are really passionate about. It would be great to wake up tomorrow morning to a Netherlands in which every company uses only renewable energy, but that's unrealistic. The insight that you can take a small step forward by really thinking out of the box was my greatest takeaway from the Challenge.”

n recent years, concern about food safety has increased globally. Several zoonosis control measures have been implemented in slaughterhouses and food processing plants. Despite this, foodborne diseases still are a problem of great impact for the global population.Traditionally, different types of bacteria, such as Salmonella, have concerned both consumers and administrations. However, there are many other bacteria capable of causing zoonosis, so it is essential to apply control measures from their origin, that is, the animal itself. An example is the case of Campylobacter. This agent is the main causative microorganism of gastroenteritis worldwide, producing from 5% to 14% of diarrhoea cases in humans. Therefore, it is very important to control this microorganism from its origin, the animal itself, and apply measures to avoid cross contaminations. There are different strains of Campylobacter capable of causing zoonosis, and most of them come from the intestine of birds, both broilers and layers, as well as pigs and ruminants. Therefore, a reduction of the intestinal concentration of this microorganism is key to reduce the chance of zoonosis. This way, the natural technology based on the cimenol ring, developed and patented by Biovet, S.A., has been proven to

Poultry Reporter February 2021

be very effective in reducing intestinal pathogen load, including Campylobacter. Reducing the concentration of Campylobacter by using cimenol ring-based solutions. As previously described, the different strains of Campylobacter are found naturally in the gut of animals, most of them are harmless to the animal itself, except for Campylobacter hepaticus, which could be involved in specific bacterial hepatitis. Since Campylobacter strains are excreted in the faeces, they can contaminate the feed, further increasing the intestinal load of Campylobacter. Therefore, it is essential to control this microorganism in the intestine itself and the feed by reducing its concentration. Biovet S.A. has developed a natural technology based on the synergy of cimenol ring with citric acid that has antimicrobial capacity to reduce the microbiological load, both in intestine and feed. Cimenol ring breaks the membrane of microorganisms destabilizing the lipid bilayer, while citric acid creates pores in the microbial membranes and facilitates the entry of the cimenol ring inside the pathogens. Both compounds are part of Alquermold Natural, a natural antimicrobial patented by Biovet S.A. Alquermold Natural’s antimicrobial capacity has been tested following the scientific method in several trials, both in

vivo and in vitro, against many microorganisms. Recently, the ability of Alquermold Natural to reduce the concentration of Campylobacter in laying hens has been evaluated in comparison with certain organic acids and formaldehyde, compounds commonly used in poultry industry for the same purpose.

Graph 1: Results of a test carried out in hens during the laying phase, where colony-forming units (CFU) can be observed with the use of different antimicrobials

In graph 1, the microbiological results of the trial can be observed. Campylobacter colony-forming units (CFU) in hens fed Alquermold Natural are markedly lower compared to the other batches. Alquermold Natural achieves a 99.6% Campylobacter CFU reduction in jejunum compared to the control, while organic acids only achieve a 38.27% reduction and formaldehyde a 40.74% reduction. This demonstrates the high efficacy of this patented technology of Biovet S.A. in the intestinal reduction of this bacteria.

Alquermold Natural not only reduces Campylobacter intestinal load, but also reduces the concentration of other microorganisms such as E. coli or Clostridium, among many others. This is related to a reduction in dirty eggs, since it can be observed that Alquermold Natural obtains the lowest percentage, which means a reduction of 65.51% compared to the control. Organic acids reduce the dirty egg percentage less effectively, and formaldehyde even increases dirty egg percentage compared to the control, maybe due to the damage that this irritating compound produces on the digestive tract. Both aspects, the reduction of the intestinal load of microorganisms such as Campylobacter, and the dirty egg reduction, have a positive impact on public health, and reduce the chances of food zoonosis caused by Campylobacter.

Decrease the intestinal microbial load and reduce the percentage of dirty eggs, key to guarantee food safety Consumers and administrations’ concern for food safety is constantly increasing because of the high prevalence of many food zoonoses. Campylobacter is one of the main bacteria causing gastroenteritis worldwide, and it mainly comes from the intestine of birds. Alquermold Natural, a plant-based technology developed and patented by Biovet S.A. has been shown to be highly effective in the intestinal reduction of Campylobacter, of up to 99.6%. This efficacy has also proved to be greater than that of other products used for the same purpose, such as organic acids or formaldehyde, which only achieve a 38.27% and 40.74% reduction, respectively.A decrease in the intestinal microbial load is related to a reduction in the percentage of dirty eggs, which only represents 2.29% with the use of Alquermold Natural, while organic acids and formaldehyde obtain 5.18 and 12.15% respectively.The decrease of the intestinal load of Campylobacter and the percentage of dirty eggs thanks to Alquermold Natural allows to increase food safety, because there is a greater control of zoonosis caused by these bacteria.

Never underestimate the importance of a healthy gut! What are the functions of the gut? Digesting feed and absorbing nutrients

"A healthy and well-balanced microbiota is key for a healthy animal as the gut microbiota contributes to the intestinal integrity, the digestion of nutrients and supports the immune system..."

Poultry Reporter February 2021

Digestion of feed can be divided in two distinctive processes: (1) the mechanical digestion by chewing, grinding, churning and mixing in upper gastrointestinal tract (mouth/crop and stomach) and (2) chemical digestion using enzymes and bile acids to break down feed material into its constituent components in the small intestine. Nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine which has a large inner surface area due to folds of the epithelial layer (villi) and presence of microvilli on the enterocytes within the epithelial layer.

Providing protection against pathogens and toxins Intestinal integrity Intestinal integrity is the ability of the GIT to act as a physical barrier, preventing the translocation of pathogens and potentially harmful molecules such as mycotoxins and endotoxins. Intestinal integrity is considered to be mainly maintained through (A) the mucus layer, covering the epithelial cells, and (B) tight junction proteins, connecting the epithelial cells. Impairment of the intestinal integrity may lead to microbial translocation (pathogens and toxins such as endotoxins), possibly causing inammation.

Gut associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) The GIT is considered to be the largest organ of the immune system as more than 70% of the cells of the immune system are located there. The GALT comprises of set of cells such as mesenchymal cells, dendritic cells, lymphocytes and macrophages located beneath the mucus layer and the single layer of epithelial cells. The main function of the GALT is to recognize and respond to pathogenic stimuli, without mounting an inflammatory response when it processes antigens from food or the commensal microbiota. Harbouring a balanced microbial population The gut microbiota is a vast group of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses and fungi residing predominantly in the hindgut, and that lives in symbiosis with the host. A healthy and well-balanced microbiota is key for a healthy animal as the gut microbiota contributes to the intestinal integrity, the digestion of nutrients and supports the immune system. Various stress factors can affect the gut microbiota and cause an imbalance or dysbiosis in the bacterial population by decreasing the beneficial bacterial population Poultry Reporter February 2021

and increasing the unfavourable bacterial population. What is optimal gut health? Optimal gut health depends on the intestinal integrity, the mucosal immune system and the microbial population, and their interactions. Under ideal conditions, these components are in balance and most dietary nutrients are directed towards growth and production. However, modern production systems expose animals to various stress factors throughout their life cycle. These stress factors, such as pathogens, toxins, heat stress, vaccinations, feed quality and feed transitions, can lead to an imbalance between the intestinal integrity, the microbiota and the immune system. As a result, digestion and absorption of nutrients become ineffective and more nutrients are used by the immune system, at the expense of the zootechnical performance. Promoting gut health with feed additives The increasing genetic potential of our livestock and intensive production systems together with the

clear and inevitable need to move away from antimicrobial growth promoters requires alternative strategies to support and maintain an optimal gut health for improved animal welfare and performance. Nowadays, feed additives have a crucial role to play in strengthening intestinal health and reducing antibiotic use by: · Improving feed digestion (feed enzymes) Reducing the presence of toxins, such as mycotoxins and endotoxins (binders) Supporting gut integrity (Immunomodulators, Phytogenic products, Acidifiers) · Supporting gut development (Immunomodulators) · Stimulating a beneficial microbiota (Immunomodulators, Acidifiers) AuthorKurt Van de Mierop ,M.Sc. – Nutrex nv ,Belgium

1 EVONIK BEGINS MARKETING OF NATURAL REFRIGERANTS January 11, 2021 | With immediate effect, Evonik's customers can now purchase three new natural refrigerants: throughout Europe and delivered using a means of transport particularly suitable for this purpose. This was made possible by the further shift of Evonik's existing C4 Verbund in Marl toward petrochemical specialties, primarily by adapting production processes. The most recent result of these adaptations are three hydrocarbon-based gases: n-butane (DRIVOSOL® R600), isobutane (DRIVOSOL® R600a), and propane (DRIVOSOL® R290). These three products, all of which also occur naturally, can be used as environmentally friendly and energy-efficient refrigerants in various appliances. This gives manufacturers of refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and heat pumps a new alternative to existing products. Against the background of the climate debate, this constitutes a valuable contribution to greater sustainability in the field of refrigeration technology. Over the last few years, the use of highquality hydrocarbons has proven its worth due to their good compatibility and miscibility with the most common cooling lubricants. In this case, quality makes all the difference. "We have many years of experience in the production of odorless liquefied gas mixtures, which we offer under the brand name DRIVOSOL®," says Sarah Kranz, marketing manager at Evonik Performance Intermediates.

Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in nutrition, health and sustainable living, has launched its sustainability platform, Reducing emissions from livestock, as part of its recent strategic initiative We Make It Possible. The sustainability platform is a commitment from DSM to reducing emissions from livestock in direct support of the UN Sustainable Development Goal 13, Climate Action. To realize a reduction in carbon emissions, animal farming has to reduce the emissions it produces, cutting the levels of methane and nitrous oxide produced, both directly and indirectly, and reduce ammonia emissions, which lead to eutrophication on land and subsequent biodiversity loss. DSM has developed innovative solutions that make every stage in the value chain more emission friendly. “For too long, sustainability has been someone else’s problem, a problem for tomorrow. Amidst global climate change, the need to reduce carbon emissions from animal livestock is increasingly important. It is not a question of whether we need to shift to a more sustainable business model, it is more a question of how fast and with what impact. We need to shift to a model where farmers are getting a fair price for the animal proteins produced, where people across the world have access to affordable proteins, and last but not least, where animal farming reduces its impact on the environment (emissions, water quality through manure measurement, biodiversity) significantly,” said Ivo Lansbergen, President, DSM Animal Nutrition & Health.
