CPM Roskamp Champion, a supplier of grinding, pelleting and cooling process technology for the petfood industry, recently trained 15 operators from Hungary’s Pannonia Ethanol on the CPM Roskamp Champion hammermill.
The training was held at Highwater Ethanol in Lamberton, Minnesota, USA, an ethanol plant that’s been using the CPM Roskamp Champion Hammermill since it began production in 2009.
Pannonia Ethanol is a new facility that will use CPM's hammermill to produce bioethanol fuel and dried distillers grains with solubles, a high-protein animal feed. The plant will convert roughly 575,000 tons of corn annually, according to the company.
“We have several goals with our new ethanol plant,” said Ferenc Mak, Pannonia Ethanol plant manager. “We want to provide a source of domestically produced animal feed; produce some of the cleanest ethanol within the European Union; and help Hungary take an active, leading role in ongoing EU efforts to decrease carbon emissions.”
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
