Russia: biowaste allowed in feed

As of 1 January 2021, the processing of some types of biological waste into ani- mal feed is permitted in Russia. Actual processing is yet to begin, as some gaps in the legislation need to be completed first. The former regulation, barring any use of biological waste by feed companies, was adopted in the 1990s, but is now outdated, according to the Russian Ga- zette. The new regulation sub-divides waste into hazardous and moderately dangerous categories, depending on the bacteria contamination level and other factors. Waste falling under the moderately dangerous category may now be used in the production of ani- mal feed and feed additives. The bill allowing the use of expired

food products in animal feed produc- tion was registered in the State Duma in the summer of 2020 and is still under consideration. According to an explan- atory note to the bill, not only feed companies but also zoos and pet food manufacturers may take advantage of the new bill. Globally, 1.3 billion tonnes of food are lost on the way from farm to table. In monetary terms, this food is worth $ 7.5 trillion per year, according to the Rus- sian Gazette. In Russia, an estimated 5% of food is lost every year at the meat processing stage alone, according to Russian scientific centre Skolkovo. Cur- rently, expired and damaged food in Russia must be destroyed or disposed of. No industrial use is allowed.

Trouw Nutrition has added a new barn to its Swine Research Centre in the Netherlands, allowing the company to do nursery pig research under several different climatic conditions. The offi- cial opening was on 18 January 2021 during a webinar, including a digital tour of the new unit and talks by com- pany executives. Saskia Korink, CEO of Trouw Nutrition, cut the virtual ribbon. The ‘Swine Nutrition & Health Unit’ is the latest addition to the company’s Swine Research Centre. The new unit consists of four identical rooms, which

are both health and climate-controlled. Individual monitoring of feed and wa- ter intake is possible. The key feature of the unit is that any condition from around the world can be simulated and environmental conditions can be repli- cated. Director of feed additives Grego Bekke explained during the webinar: “We’re selling products to more than 100 countries. Having a unit where we can set up disease challenges and sim- ulate local circumstances will really support the development of our new products and concepts.”
