NHU's methionine plant achieves 50,000 tonnes in first production phase
Following the commencement of NHU's methionine project in Shandong, China in 2013, the first production phase has achieved an annual volume of 50,000 tonnes this year.
''In such a complex project like the production of methionine, it could not be expected that all processes run so smoothly right from the beginning. The production has surpassed all our expectations and it underlines the capability of NHU as a competent and ambitious supplier to the modern feed industry,'' says Mr. Li Huafeng, global sales director for NHU´s Nutrition Business Unit.
The consistently positive feedback from customers has shown that the risk of entering the market for amino acids will be rewarded, says NHU.
NHU has so far been an important supplier in the field of vitamins and colourants and methionine marks the next big step for the company to become a major player in the sector.
