On 18 September 2013, BIOTEC and Bioscience Animal Health Co., Ltd. entered into an agreement to study a fermentation process of biomass to improve nutrient in animal feeds. Representing BIOTEC and Bioscience Animal Health at the signing ceremony were Dr. Kanyawim Kirtikara, BIOTEC Executive Director, and Dr. Dhanawat Khongjaroensombat, President of Bioscience Animal Health.
The project aims to find an alternative source of protein for animal feed production from biomass, as animal protein becomes increasingly costly. Studies have shown that fermentation can improve protein content in biomass. BIOTEC will use its expertise in microbial utilization and its rich Culture Collection to develop fermentation process for selected biomass, the result of which will contribute to the development of commercial feed supplement.
Dr. Kanyawim revealed that “BIOTEC is pleased to collaborate with Bioscience Animal Health. Input from a company with marketing intelligence is crucial in guiding us to conduct commercially viable research.”
Dr. Dhanawat added that, “our company values the importance of innovation and the needs to develop our own technologies and products, which led us to the collaboration with BIOTEC.”
Bioscience Animal Health Co., Ltd. is a company of BIS group, providing innovative products, services and technologies related to animal health.
