Proticorn®, the animal feed produced by Alco Bio fuel and Alco Energy Rotterdam, in “La Revue de l’alimentation animale”

Our 2 plants work as biorefineries, transforming grain in 3 main products: fuel ethanol, a low carbon addition to gasoline, DDGS, a protein-rich animal feed branded Proticorn®, and CO2, used for food, horticulture and industrial applications. Vanden Avenne Commodities, who markets our Proticorn® DDGS was interviewed by the French magazine “La Reveue de l’Alimentation Animale”.  Johan Gereels, Quality Manager, underlines a few important aspects of our product: the quality control is very strict on possible traces of dioxines, pesticides, mycotoxins among others; Proticorn® is made from European corn, certified sustainable by ISCC, and replaces imports of GMO soja. We really create value along the chain!
