A review from Cologne, Germany

V ictam 2011 brought with it a lot of changes: A change of frequen- cy – being held once every three

years to every four years (as the previous

one had been held on 2007); a change of localisation from - Utrecht (in The Netherlands) to Cologne, Germany;

a change in its appeal - as Fiapp (an

exhibition for ingredient and additive

But the fundamentals were still there:

international feed industry, new technology and innovation, meeting with conferences.

Paradigm change takeing place

With a more convenient localisation to express their growth, the Victam, GRAPAS and FIAPP 2011 shows had been a great success both for exhibitors or visitors. Easy-to-reach by train, air and car, easy-to-park, easy-to- lodge in a city which offering enough rooms to accommodate any number of visitors and finally,

on local tram lines to accommo- date everyone. The change from Utrecht in The Netherlands to Cologne in Germany seems to have been well accepted by visitors. The only exception to a smooth

transfer were some technical issues with regard to the lack of signage to conferences rooms, which the exposition park missed providing. Exhibitors are still evaluating their experiences and expressing their views to the organisation so, over the next few months, more details will be avail- able regarding the success of the change and decisions to be taken with regard to the next European show.

manufacturers) and Grapas (an exhibition

for flour, pasta and rice milling and general grain processing for foodstuffs) became co-located exhibition following the success

of an expanded show at Victam Asia.

26 | may - June 2011

Belying the change in location there is a real paradigm change taking place within our indusries: Western Europe is no more the centre of the feed universe, North Africa and Eastern Europe emergence are emerg- ing as strong realities. Without overlooking the development of Middle East and Asia – showing up as either established visitors or exhibitors. The number of Chinese exhibitors has grown remarkably and they are looking for business in Europe and Africa, and not just within the Asian region: Victam Bangkok 2012 - to be held next February - is much more dedicated to be representative of the region. At Victam International in Cologne more than 17 Chineses exhibitors and four other Asian firms exhibited. Even if connected, our industry had seen this direction in growth for Victam International as early as the 1990s. Now it is much more evident, as it had been clear at the beginning of 2008 in Bangkok during Victam Asia, that a more central European venue for Victam International was necesary.

Big machines – big displays

First impressions of the show were that this was the real thing! With real and big machines on display. Visitors wanted to see and to touch and even smell the real thing. The immediate impression was about size: big, big machinery which begs the ques-

tion, does the feed industry really give any thought to energy cost? Of course not you would think, but just look at Stolz and its work about optimisation of the drying proc- ess in connection with the French technical center Tecaliman. There were innovation looking at what might seems minor details as to the repartition of particle size reduction through grinding, as the easiest change of spare parts, through to the cleaning concepts now included on many machines. Another field that appeared to be a common thread throughout the show was on-line control, either to control humidity/ moisture or protein content. If we can easily see the interest in those control measures and the automatic regulation of the process parameters for dealing with moisture, we are still waiting to see how we might use on-line protein control to regulate the process. Pelleting technology to be used in the production of bioenergy was also evident at the show.

Bioenergy and pelleting

The biomass part of the exhibition is completely connected with the feed technol- ogy and visitors began showing an interest in this technology as early as 2007 during the previous Victam International in Utrecht. Some 40 millions tonnes of pellets might be produced in Europe by the bioenergy

industry by 2020: this market might over- take the investment in feed equipment if it fullfills its promise and reaches this target, expressed during the European Biomasse Association conference Aebiom. It had been held on May 5, 2011. It should come at no surprise that some of the main exhibitors and sponsored for this event are strong play- ers in the feed sector – to name a few they include, Andritz, CPM, Kahl, Latgran, Poyry, VDB and Vapo. The estimation for world output of bioenergy pellets by 2015 is a massive 23.5 million tonnes. Europe is expected to produce 10 million tonnes of that - less than the half of world output. However, aas early as 2008, European bioenergy pellet produc- tion reached 6.3 tonnes - which mean that already Europe was accounting for more than half of total production of 11.8 million tonnes at that time. The fastest growth might well occur in North America where output was just 2.9 million tonnes in 2008 with an esti- mated target of 7.7 million tonnes by 2015. Production is partly assured on machines from previously feed or other operations would need. But in 2010, over capacity had been significant throughout the world, from one-third in Germany to more than double in USA. So investments in this sec- tor will need to wait a little for the new year to come.

The feed-related co-located shows

FIAPP, the feed ingredients and feed additives show, didn’t seem as important regarding the number of exhibitors taking space, but are going their road. The EPA press conference about probiotics is pointing this fact. At the end of the 1980s, the first European conference which launched the debate between probiotics and antibiotics, for example, had already taken place at Huhn and Shwein (the previous name for Eurotier) in Germany. Maybe this press meeting sig- naled the real installation of additives and ingredients as a part of this global show? As visitors to Victam International are mostly tech- nologists, they might be more interested in the technical con- straints or advantages of one ingredient over another, but the show must drive buyers to develop this part of Victam. Despite this consideration, the confer- ences gave some driving force to FIAPP. For example the seaweed products of Ocean Harvest showed its interest in aqua- feed as a substitute of premixes with its range of minerals and vitamins (apart for B group vitamins which might be found on yeast products). GRAPAS, the grain (GRA) and pasta (PAS) show targeted flour milling, gain and

of import) of wood pellets and Germany (at 1.6 million tonnes or nearly self-sufficient) have been the major European markets in 2009. The globalization of the pellet sector opens up worldwide sup- ply with the transport and logistical

implication of the pellet transfer from regions with high biomass potential to high consumption regions. Price index and more and more sophisticated price regulation tools are becoming available, a sign that the market is becoming a world- wide commodity. With the market growth, raw material diversification will become crucial: the use of new raw materials such as straw and hay (which poses questions about competition with feed), corn cobs, sunflower husks, peanut shells and other biomass offers a realistic opportunity for future diversification. The general pat- tern is the same

as with feed: not to allow spoilage or waste of any resource. Finally, bio- mass quality is perceived as essential in achieving suc- cessful market development. The ENplus quality certifica- tion is develop- ing: 60 percent of Germany and 90 percent of Austria produc- tion capacities are expected to be certified at the end of 2011.

Aquafeed Organised by Linx Conferences in asso- ciation with Nofima, the Norwan Research Institute, and sponsored by Buhler, Aquafeed Horizon was attended by more than 100 participants looking for the latest develop- ments in aquatic feed production. For example, handling, storage and trans- port of feeds lead to attrition of pellets. Undersized particles represent loss and poor utilisation of feed resources. Thus, feed with high physical pellet quality is in demand. However, physical proper- ties affect the nutritional value of feeds. Research shows that feed intake appears to be the main factor when evaluating pellet quality, but several other factors such as pellet durability, nutrient digestibility and fat belching must be taken into consideration when searching for the most economical and sustainable pellet quality.

rice processing as well as pasta and noodle production industries. These industries are using some of the same technologies that are used in the feed sector and it is quite clear there is sound synergies here.

Seminars

Pellets for bioenergy Around 100 participants attended this event: It proved a great success for Aebiom (the European Biomass Association) which had been held on the last day of the show. It focused on the market and on the opportunity for the pelleting technology. It shows some advantages: energy density, logistics, lower investments in plants … the pellet demand might reach 229TWh in 2020, 68 percent solid biomass, 50 percent pellets. For Jean-Marc Jossart (of Aeobiom), the demand for pellets will reach 42 mil- lion tonnes worldwide by then. Sweden with its two million tonnes (500Kt

Hardness and durability combined with low, medium or high water and steam input in the extrusion process show different impacts on feed intake and fish growth. Those data can be used by the indus- try to better understand and correct the observed variance in extrusion properties, pellet quality and to improve the product specifications used by fishmeal producers and purchasers. As explained Joseph P Kearns from Wenger, the developing trend in aquafeed plants is to ensure feed safety throughout the production process. A strategic path to accomplish this would be to assess and design the facility with attention to raw materials and their storage, plant equipment design, processing or operating procedure, final product efficacy and the overall culture of day-to-day operation of the plant. As Urs Wuest from Buhler said, the chang- ing requirement in the aquafeed industry translate into a demand for specific technical requirement such as extrusion technology.

Ingredients and additives Eufetech, the European Feed Technology Center, and Linx Conferences proposed a conference focusing on feed safety and formulation advances. Eufetech brings together animal feed manufacturers, academia and research- ers from: Bemefa (Belgium), FEFAC and FEFANA (UE), Cesfac (Spain), Tecaliman (France), Wageningen (The Netherlands), Ghent University (Belgium), FINSV (Serbia), Isan (Italy), University of Nottingham (UK). Since 1995, the EU has required feed manufacturers to estimate the mixing and cross contamination risk on their plants. The pressure from this regulation has continuously grown and the last Directive (08/09) limited the carryover from three to one percent for coccidiostics, depending on whether or not it is target feeds. In this context, Tecaliman had devel- oped, beginning 20 years ago, rules to evaluate mixing capability of a mixer and cross contamination levels in plants. The technical centre promotes a method using external micro-tracer which became recog- nize as a reference in Europe. The quality of new raw material as distill- ers dried grain depend of the process on the plant as Kip Karges of Poet Nutrition showed. Ilvo from Belgium had evaluated the nutritional value of wheat DDGS for ruminants and pig. During the conference, a wide range of other topics had been presented, form GMP+ to enzymes as additives for upgrad- ing the nutritive value of poultry diets containing sunflower meal and the potential of organic trace minerals to improve animal health and reduce environmental impact of animal production systems.

award by Roger Gilbert of Perendale Publishers, England. CPM were elated to receive the award as they are first and foremost a feed processing equipment company. The competition was strong with companies like Golfetto Sangati Spa in the running, but in the end CPM was awarded first place. Victam 2011 was held for the first time in the Köln Messe, Germany - from May 3-5 2011

- to showcase new technology

and innovations, and bring together petfood, animal feed and aquafeed industries

where suppliers can meet with producers. This year’s event was expanded to include grain processing and pasta process

- and hence the establishment

of the GRAPAS award – as well as feed ingredients and additives. The judges choose CPM because of “the absolute relevance to the milling industry for their ‘Roll Speed Measurement’”. CPM developed and tested this pellet mill roller speed measurement in combination with its famous automatic roller adjust type Lineator to provide additional information for pelleting management which it had not seen before. One customer is quoted as saying that “The CPM roll speed measurement is similar to the ABS for automobiles.” Mr Gilbert said Grain and Feed Milling Technology magazine was honoured to sponsor the award for Victam-GRAPAS and thanked all companies making application.
