Feed analysis: Bon appétit

Modern compound feed has to fulfill many requirements. Not only must it provide animals with healthy nutrition and minimize the excretion of nitrogen—its production should also consume as few raw materials as possible. Evonik’s feed analyses and essential amino acids are making an important contribution to sustainable animal husbandry.

Debate: Is smart farming worth it?

Thanks to smart technology, cows can be milked efficiently and crop protection agents can be precisely applied. At the same time, data gathering and processing is facing agricultural operations with huge challenges. Andreas Dörr, a farmer, and Johann Meierhöfer, an expert from a farmers’ association, talk about the opportunities and limits of digitalization

Clean Water

Unevenly distributed water

More and more often, entire regions are drying out—while other regions are being devastated by catastrophic floods. The uneven distribution of water is facing the human race with problems that were previously unimaginable. Good management and technology adapted to local needs can help in the search for a solution

Ferdi Schüth, 62, ist seit 1998 Direktor am Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung in Mülheim an der Ruhr. Von Juni 2014 bis Juni 2020 war der Chemiker Vizepräsident der MaxPlanck-Gesellschaft, für die er Energiethemen repräsentiert. Bereits 2007 koordinierte Schüth innerhalb der deutschen Chemieorganisationen ein Positionspapier, das die Bedeutung der Branche für die Energieversorgung und eine effiziente Energieverwendung aufzeigt.

Planning and prioritization for climate neutrality

Ferdi Schüth is one of the most renowned chemistry professors in Germany and the managing director of the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung. He thinks it is technologically possible for the EU to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. However, the attainment of this goal will require the chemical industry to radically restructure its material and energy flows


Herne plans to be climate-friendly

Solar power, green hydrogen, carbon dioxide from exhaust gases—energy and raw materials must increasingly be obtained from non-fossil sources in order to make chemical production more climate-friendly. This is an overview of the plans for Evonik’s Herne location

Climate-friendly methionine from Singapore

The amino acid methionine enhances the sustainability of livestock farming. Evonik is now using an extension of its production facilities in Singapore to also significantly reduce the CO₂ footprint of this animal feed additive

Climate Protection

A green transformation for the chemical industry

There are many ways to make chemical production sustainable. One of these ways is to convert not only the big reactors but also just about everything around them. Managing raw materials, energy or waste flows smartly can be the key to a green future. Evonik wants to demonstrate this with its Herne Green Deal. A site visit
