Fish and animal feed made from wastewater

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 tonnes 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, according to Nutrinsic.

"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.
