Jorenku A/S, a leading Danish manufacturer of hygiene products has announced the promising results from a new Chinese University study, revealing the ability of the company's dry disinfecting powder, Staldren to completely degrade both African Swine Fever Virus (ASFV) and Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV)
Global aquafeed solutions leader, Skretting and leading biotechnology company, I&V-Bio have announced their strategic partnership to revolutionise artemia enrichment using ORI-N
Often referred to as brine shrimp, Artemia serves as a vital component in the early stages of various aquatic species’ life cycles. Optimal nutrition of artemia is essential for the healthy growth and development of shrimp in aquaculture systems.
Skretting’s revolutionary nutritional supplement ORI-N3, enriched with essential proteins, lipids, and micronutrients is specially designed to boost the nutritional content of artemia, providing a balanced and comprehensive diet for early-stage aquatic species. This unique composition also ensures optimal growth rates, improved resistance to diseases, and enhanced overall health of shrimp.
The collaboration aims to redefine the standards of aquaculture nutrition, contributing to the overall well-being of aquatic species and, consequently, the sustainability of the entire aquaculture ecosystem. Skretting’s deep understanding of the aquaculture industry and commitment to sustainability align seamlessly with I&V Bio’s vision of revolutionising aquaculture nutrition.

The Bel group in collaboration with APBO (Bel’s Milk Producers Association in the West of France) have presented the results of a pilot study conducted with dsm-firmenich and Institut de l’Elevage (Idele) on five dairy farms in western France from January to March 2023
The objective of the study was to confirm the practical feasibility of distributing the feed additive, Bovaer to dairy cows in real-life farm conditions, using different types of ration and distribution methods.
Five farms were chosen for the project and Bovaer was added at a rate of around a quarter teaspoon a day to the diet of dairy cows. As Bovaer began taking action, it was safely broken down into compounds naturally present in the rumen, while at the same time suppressing the enzyme, and generating less methane as a result.
Data and analyses have demonstrated Bovaer’s successful implementation, irrespective of the ration type and distribution method used on the farms. Results have also shown that optimal conditions can cause a reduction in enteric methane, which was estimated at between 29% and 42% depending on the farm, over the two months of the study.
When cows combine barn and pasture feeding, Bovaer cannot be distributed during the hours when the cows are on pasture. dsm-firmenich is currently developing a slow-release form of the product which should also enable the product to be active during grazing hours.
“Bovaer offers immense potential for moving towards a low-carbon dairy industry, a strong and long-standing commitment of the Bel group,” said director of Milk Purchasing for the Bel group, Simon Bonnet. “We are delighted to have been able to test this innovative solution in France and demonstrate its relevance, working in concert with our dairy farmers from APBO, Idele and dsm-firmenich.”
