Production of functional animal proteins for use in the industry, pharmaceutical and cosmetics, animal husbandry, and biotechnology

The project is building a production complex with daily processing capacity of 80 tons of meat and 40 tons of keratin-containing stock. The facility will produce keratin and functional meat proteins. Using micro-, ultra-, and nanofiltration, it will also produce functional nanocompositions with low-molecular peptide and amino acid fractions.

Functional keratin contains a large amount of sulfur-rich amino acids used in animal feed, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and cosmetics. Functional proteins contain the complete set of amino acids, including isoleucine, leucine, and valine, which are essential to muscle formation. Functional nanocompositions based on meat proteins have hypoallergenic, immunomodulating, and antioxidant properties, making them suitable for special diets, children’s food, sports nutrition, and enteral feeding.
