New! EcoChar website width=

Mavitec launched a new website on EcoChar: EcoChar is a powerful soil improver and valuable by-product of our gasification system that converts various kinds of manure into renewable energy and high value EcoChar. It still contains the mineral ash and fixed carbon which offers great environmental advantages and economic value. EcoChar consists of high P, K, Ca and Mg values, is dry, free from pathogens and can hold more water than its own weight. It improves soil fertility, lowers the amount of nutrients needed and reduces your carbon footprint. Interested? Visit or contact our sales department.

Profit from processing poultry by-products

One of our valued Ukrainian customers explains in an interview in ‘PoultryWorld’. Before 2015, these by-products were considered as waste and treated as such. Under a new development strategy, the company re-equipped its production facilities to process by-products and generate additional profits. About improving the quality of the products and stepping up to the premium quality segment: meat & bone meal and fat. Due to the general shortage of proteins in the market prices showed an increase with respect to all rendered products: a sharp rise in prices for vegetable proteins and oils was reflected in increased prices for animal proteins and fats.
