How do we reduce our environmental footprint?
Reduced methane and CO2 emissions
In addition to the greatly reduced methane emissions, the Euroclim feed also has an impact on carbon emissions. Because only 100% European raw materials are used in this animal feed, Arvesta is not dependent on environmentally damaging, long-distance transport. In this way, we only use short transports and reduce carbon emissions.
Raw materials with low food competition
Studies were done to find out which raw materials in the feed category could be better used for the production of meat in order to limit the raw materials in the food category as much as possible. For example, over 80% of the raw materials in the Euroclim range come from secondary flows, such as the circular economy, for example, wheat bran, a by-product of wheat flour. These are products that cannot be consumed by humans. As a result, Euroclim feeds require three times less raw materials that could be used for human nutrition.
GMO-free raw materials
The great advantage of 100% European raw materials is that none of these raw materials are genetically modified (GMO-free). This cannot be said of the soy imported from Latin America, for example. The fact that the raw materials do not come from Latin America also contributes to the fight against the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest.
