GLENDALE, CO--(Marketwired - May 18, 2015) - Nutrinsic announces the Grand Opening of their sustainable protein production facility co-located at MillerCoors LLC at their brewery’s Water Reclamation Facility in Trenton, Ohio. The facility has a nameplate capacity of 5,000 tons per year of ProFloc, a high quality, protein ingredient for use in fish and animal nutrition. ProFloc™ is produced using patented technology, which upcycles nutrients that would otherwise be undervalued or lost, making it a sustainable and earth-friendly protein source for all types of aquatic and terrestrial animal feeds.
“MillerCoors cares deeply about sustainability in all aspects of the brewing process, and believes waste is a resource out of place,” said Denise Quinn, MillerCoors Trenton Brewery Vice President. “That’s why we’re proud to partner with Nutrinsic, to turn what was previously a waste stream into something of value.”
MillerCoors Trenton Brewery has been landfill-free since 2009, meaning it reuses or recycles the majority of its waste and sends less than one percent to a landfill. Nutrinsic will work with the Trenton Brewery to turn waste from its water reclamation center into a protein source for animal feed.
Nutrinsic is a pioneer in providing commercial nutrition solutions through the upcycling of unused nutrients. By recovering nutrients, Nutrinsic helps food and beverage processors deliver clean water to the environment and eliminate the need to dispose of waste. This process creates an environmentally and economically sustainable source of premium protein for animal nutrition. www.nutrinsic.com.
