  2. 2. INDUSTRY PROFILES www.akahl.de Amandus Kahl Part of the Kahl Group, Amandus Kahl provides mechanical engineering for the future. Founded in 1876, it manufactures feed mill machinery including pelleting presses, extruders and turn-key plants, and works closely with research institutions and universities as well as its international customer base. Looking forward to 2014: fish feed plant set into operation in the Maghreb After extensive market analysis Amandus Kahl has been selected as a partner for the company Rafaha Aquaculture in Tunisia. In addition to the process and plant design for the complete line, Kahl provided support regarding the basic formulas and the raw materials to be used, as well as intensive training of the operating personnel. The factory is equipped with the latest Kahl process technology, the core of which is the extrusion system with the Kahl Extruder OEE and the process control system ESEP. In the production process, the raw materials undergo the process steps of weighing, fine grinding, mixing, extrusion, drying, vacuum coating, cooling and packaging. In the first expansion stage, the factory has a capacity of 25 000 tonnes a year. Sinking, slowly sinking and floating products in various shapes and sizes can be produced. The formulas tailored to the requirements of the sea bream are characterized by a low starch and high protein content. Particularly in the area of conditioning and extrusion, Kahl process technology allows them to react to the demands of the local raw materials. Shaping and adjustment of the pellet density are realized in the extruder type OEE. This machine is equipped with the hydraulically movable die which is typical of the Kahl extruder. It allows the extruder to start with open die, which reduces waste and makes the critical process start and stop very easy. Due to the automatic opening of the die, a die change can be completed within 120 seconds. This provides additional convenience; in particular since fish feed production typically requires a variety of different pellet diameters. At the same time a high level of plant availability with a low downtime results from the rapid die change. An all-encompassing modernization package could be implemented in the periphery of the vacuum coater. In the light of continuous quality monitoring of the finished product, a new software system for batch traceability was installed. It allows much greater transparency in the production process, with the storage of more than 1 000 formulae and the retracing of production data.

  6. 6. Leiber brewers’ yeast products - natural power for reliable aquaculture performance Aquaculture has faced a tremendous and persistent boom over the past decades, accompanied by an intensification of production. In today’s intensive and expansive modern aquaculture, fish and shellfish are often subjected to a plethora of various stressors in their living environment. A chronic stress response is generally believed to suppress or dysregulate immune functions and makes the organism more susceptible to pathogens with the eventual risk of causing diseases. Therefore, the famous phrase “prevention is better than cure” takes on more and more significance in today’s aquatic animal husbandry. The multibiotic action of the Leiber products used in aquafeeds is an important contribution to animal health and performance by prophylactically strengthening the animal against those stressors in aquaculture husbandry. Leiber’s key products for aquaculture are: • Leiber® Beta-S – a highly purified (1,3)-(1,6)-ß-D-Glucan for strong, immunocompetent fish • Biolex® MB40 – Mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) for gut protection and health • Leiber® Yeast Autolysate - Nucleotides for optimal cell regeneration and cell repair In 2014 it will be 60 years that Leiber has supplied high value brewers’ yeast products under the “Made in Germany” banner throughout the world. With two locations in Lower Saxony, Germany, as well as additional production facilities in Poland and Russia, Leiber’s over 160 dedicated specialists manufacture brewers’ yeast products and yeast extracts of the highest quality standard. The certification with the ISO 22000:2005 standard in 2013 highlights this quality of production. Leiber’s focus on supporting the aquaculture industry has been increased by the staff reinforcement with Mr. Holger Kühlwein as the Key Account Manager for aquaculture in April 2013. His responsibilities include among other things supporting and expanding existing markets, recruiting new sales partners and the individual scientific support. www.leibergmbh.de INDUSTRY PROFILES Liptosa Lipidos Toledo SA (LIPTOSA) is a Spanish company specializing in the production of nutraceuticals, phytobiotics and other solutions for aquaculture. Liptosa offers a wide range of additives: growth promoters, hepatic protectors, antiparasites, attractants, chelated minerals, antioxidants and binders – all of them designed specifically for aquaculture with the aim of improving the health status and productivity of fish and shrimp farms. This year Liptosa has introduced additives in new countries, making significant efforts to discover commercial opportunities in new places, and for new kinds of production systems. The Chinese market deserves a special mention with its diverse aquaculture and farming of new species, which always means new opportunities. Liptosa is trying to focus on additives with high likelihood of success, such as growth promoters and attractants. South American aquaculture is another interesting market for Liptosa. Salmon, tilapia and shrimp are all species that can take advantage of our additives, namely phytobiotics with antiparasite functions, growth promoters and hepatic protectors. Thoughts for 2014 Currently Liptosa additives are marketed in all countries with significant aquaculture production and technology. Next year our aim is to continue with the promotion of natural solutions as the best way to make aquaculture healthier and more productive. Our company firmly believes in a future where it will be possible to have sustainable aquaculture for the whole world. Our products intend to give efficient and profitable solutions. Indeed to face problems before they appear is ‘the best tool, applied in the right way’. In aquaculture there is still room for improvement. Liptosa has an expert team of professionals in fish nutrition and production in order to provide effective solutions to its clients. In 2014 we’ll continue designing new additives and working on new developments, especially in the field of antiparasites and attractants. www.liptosa.com NUTRACEUTICALS AND PHYTOBIOTICS FOR AQUACULTURE Growth promoters Anti-parasites Attractants Hepatoprotectors Antioxidants Detoxifiers Chelated minerals ADDITIVES FOR AQUACULTURE SOLUTIONS
