Virtual mission Southeast Asia: ‘Waste management and circularity’
During the virtual mission to Southeast Asia, from 1-4 december 2020, the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in Vietnam hosted a webinar to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the Mekong Delta. Mavitec took part in a panel highlighting the circular economy and waste management. In this field Mr. Helmus Damen offered practical experiences and show-cased Mavitec’s Dutch technology and expertise.
Helmus Damen, Sales Director of Mavitec (rendering solutions):
‘The meat sector in Southeast Asia is moving up fast, growth numbers are amazing. What’s left after the meat and slaughtering process are by-products (such as feathers/blood/soft material) that is not suitable for human consumption. Our technology converts these by-products into valuable proteins/meal for applications such as animal feed or pet food industry. The meat sector in Asia is moving up very fast and our technology offers a commercial business model.’
With special thanks to Larive International and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vietnam.
