Oct 21, 2014

INFORM Magazine – October 21, 2014 – Nutrinsic staff members Tracy Yates and Leo Gingras recently published an article detailing the company's ability to use palm mill effluent to produce single-cell protein, which can then be placed into animal feeds.

INFORM, an International publication, is a respected magazine dedicated to the advancement of science and technologies related to oils, fats, surfactants and other similar materials.

Palm oil production has continued to increase in recent years, driven by global demand for edible oils, and currently stands at approximately 54 million metric tons (MMT) annually. Roughly 85 percent of world palm oil production comes from Indonesia and Malaysia, which together produce about 45 MMT of crude palm oil annually. Concomitant with the production of palm oil is the generation of vast quantities of palm oil mill effluent (POME).
