Feed & feed additives
Zetadec is working on the improvement/evaluation of the production processes of different animal feeds such as: compound animal feed, (coated) feed additives, pre-mixes, pet food, fish feed and calf milk replacers. We are specialized in the following unit-operations: Extrusion, Pelleting, Coating, Grinding, Mixing, Drying, Cooling, Post-pelleting application of additives.
Fertilizers & plant nutrition
Zetadec assists in the development of liquid and solid fertilizers. The fertilizers and fertilization strategies are evaluated with field and greenhouse trials. Besides the development of fertilizers, we assist in the optimisation of full-scale production plants.
Biomass & renewables
Biomass (wood, waste materials, agricultural crops, animal manure, algae, etc.) can be converted to bioplastic, (bio)energy or extraction products. Different techniques in combination with thermal, enzymatic and (bio)chemical treatments are applied to increase the value of biomass.
Our expertise is mainly in transforming food or feed by-products into usable food products. Extraction of valuable components from raw materials to be used as food ingredients is also part of our expertise.
Data mining, modelling and statistics
Data analysis is a large part of scientific research. Zetadec has great experience in experimental design, mathematical modelling and data mining. This experience is also used for the making of decision support systems in the production industry.
