BIOFUELS FOR A GROWING POPULATION

Addressing the growing demand for cleaner and safer fuel

In 1998 we constructed the first U.S. commercial plant that could produce premium biodiesel from animal fats and used cooking oils. Where are we 20 years further down the road? And how does this fit in with the commitment to provide for a growing population?


RETRIEVING NUTRIENTS FROM MANURE

How a radical idea is now delivering more clean water than ever before

Sometimes livestock produces more manure than farmers can safely use as fertilizer. We already knew how to produce biophosphate from manure, but our process still left us with a large volume of unprocessed material we couldn't use. Learn how we tackled this issue, so that we can now close the loop for farmers, their livestock and the environment.


FEEDING TOMORROW'S WORLD

Tomorrow's nutrition... today!

By 2050, there will be nearly 10 billion of us. Feeding tomorrow’s world means doubling the amount of protein-rich food we produce today. It’s an enormous challenge. But sometimes big problems can have tiny solutions.

With this Ecozone we improved bio-diversity in our surroundings, creating a place to relax and recreate.
