Borregaard LignoTech’s pellet binders and lubricating aids offer a wide range of benefits to compound feed producers, such as:
Most of these benefits apply also to wood pellet producers.
Feed compounders face daily challenges to produce animal feed pellets with high and consistent pellet quality, while maintaining the profitability of their mills. Borregaard LignoTech, with many years experience of working in the Feed Industry, has developed an in-depth understanding of feed pelleting and the parameters that influence pellet quality, and are skilled in assisting compounders to fully optimise their pelleting process. Part of this knowledge has been utilised to develop natural, lignin-based pellet binders and die lubricants, which can be added to the feed formulation to improve pelleting efficiency (kWh/T) and increase the strength/durability of the finished product:
