Specialist Nutrition secures €135 million ethanol by-products deal

Ireland-based Specialist Nutrition has secured a five-year deal worth €135 million to supply by-products from a US ethanol plant as sustainable feed to farmers in New York.

Part of the Arvum Group, Specialist Nutrition converts co-products produced in the distilling, brewing and biofuel industries into sustainable animal feed.

The deal with US-based Attis Industries will see the company establish a base in the US, in Syracuse, New York, to market and distribute 500,000 tonnes of feed annually into the state’s dairy farming sector from a corn ethanol plant in Fulton.

Through the agreement, Attis will be able to market to wet cake and syrup co-product streams into speciality feed applications, which is the company’s first step towards transforming the Fulton facility into the world’s first GreenTech campus.

“Our expansion into the US market has been achieved following two decades of strong collaboration with international food and beverage companies in Europe,” said Arvum Group CEO Roy Power. “Our team have spent a year working with the team at Attis, stepping them through our process to the point where they are confident in signing a five-year deal that changes the sustainable nature of their business.

“We will be providing a consistent supply of locally-produced animal feed to New York state farmers and the plant will be lowering its carbon footprint and increasing efficiencies.”

According to Attis, the new product offering significantly improves efficiency, while reducing the processing time of distillers’ grains, saving over €2.3 million in annual costs for natural gas supply. It also lowers the facility’s carbon footprint and increases operational performance by 3-5 days.

“At Attis, we are working to transform this facility into the best, most efficient corn ethanol plant in the world, and this partnership allows us to add a key co-product diversification component to its operations,” added Attis Industries president Gregory Pilewiez. “This agreement is the first step in the overall expansion of the Fulton plant into the premier GreenTech campus in the world.”
