Animal Feed & Hygiene

With the current earth population expected to reach 8.6 billion in 2030 and 9.8 billion in 2050, according to a 2017 United Nations report and with the technological improvements in every field of the feed and farm sector, more and more farmers and feed producers are facing great challenges in feed optimization. These challenges have great impact on their livestock, its health and of course their profitability.

In order to build on these challenges one has to be innovative and offer solutions that will help his customer succeeding their goals.  Geohellas offers the animal feed sector and the farmers, the tools and the broad perspective of the multi-functionality required against the everyday challenges they are dealing with. Many of these challenges are the battle against mycotoxins, the maximization of the feed efficiency, the protection of the digestive health of the animals, the strengthening of their immune system and the biosecurity in the livestock buildings.

Attapulgite is a rare magnesium aluminosilicate with a very high water absorption capacity, used for its anti-diarrheal actions in animals and humans. Special innovative thermo-mechanical methods applied by Geohellas are enhancing internal (hydrophilic) and external (oleophilic) surface properties of attapulgite that induce optimal anti-diarrheal and selective binding actions on toxins like Zearalenone, Aflatoxins, Ochratoxin, Fumonisin, T2 etc, and bacterial toxigenic strains like Escherichia coli and Clostridium perfringen.

Our research is conducted in our laboratories along with universities, public and private institutes, well known external accredited and EU authorized laboratories and in many of our customer facilities. Geohellas has a growing portfolio of published studies in many reputable scientific magazines and continuously works on developing new solutions for our clients.
