Products & Solutions for Food, Feed & Beverages

Active Oxygens for Aquaculture

Hydrogen peroxide is a sustainable natural remedy for sea lice infestation in fish farming and aquaculture. Peracetic acid is a powerful biocide that can be used in aquaculture circuits and seafood processing for treating fish in the defense against pathogens.

Active Oxygens for Food Processing and Food Fiber Bleaching  

Hydrogen peroxide is used in sterile processing, color adjustment and food bleaching like herring, instant tea, starch, cheese whey, tripe or natural fatty acid emulsifiers. The antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antiviral effects of peracetic acid are suitable for cleaning and disinfection of CIP or SIP equipment.

Active Oxygens for Fruit and Vegetable Processing

Our peracetic acid controls pathogens such as Staphylococcus, E.coli, Salmonella and Listeria in process waters that come in contact with fruits and vegetables, is suitable for disinfecting hard surfaces, food processing equipment, equipment in beverage companies, food processing and packaging plants, and food service supplies.

Active Oxygens for Poultry Processing

Peracetic acid is used as an antimicrobial and processing agent and acidifier in poultry processing waters, chillers, post-chill, finishing chillers and on-line Reprocessing (OLR) systems as well as for application on poultry parts, carcasses, trim, organs or ready-made products to reduce contamination of pathogenic bacteria.

Active Oxygens for Red Meat Processing

Peracetic acid-based antimicrobials are applied directly to carcasses and organs of red meat to effectively reduce contamination with pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. The products are also used in industrial waters, chillers and OLR systems.

Additives for Packaging Inks

Our additives for packaging inks improve substrate wetting, durability as well as color stability in your coating formulation and can be used for different substrates. Can coating additives are suitable for food contact and comply to regulatory requirements. 

Additives for Paper Coating & Paper Impregnation

For the paper industry and in particular for paper coating and paper impregnation Evonik offers a class of excellent additives.

Aquaculture Solutions

Animal health, animal feed, the environment, and farm management must all be considered to master the challenges in fish farming and aquaculture. Fish farmers cannot resolve these challenges by applying a single product. Therefore, we have developed a portfolio of solutions over decades. These unique aquaculture solutions are based on low crude protein, amino acids, probiotics, AMINO services and expert consultancy. They help you improve animal health and well-being, the water quality of your ponds, decrease your carbon footprint, and manage your farm in a sustainable yet profitable way.

Catalysts for food & feed technology

Our catalysts can help you develop compelling flavors and sweeteners, as well as functional foods and dietary supplements. Palladium-on-carbon catalysts enable, among other things, the hydrogenation of hops to make the beer more resistant to UV light. Full and partial hydrogenation of vegetable or animal oils and fats allows the use of local fat and oil sources as well as recycled frying oils.

DEGACRYL® HS Methacrylates for Food Packaging

Our DEGACRYL® methacrylate binders for heat sealing applications are ideally suited to formulate high-quality lacquers with excellent seal and peel properties on aluminum foil or film structures like PET for secure food packaging.

Feed for Poultry

Poultry farmers are facing many challenges. Therefore, we offer a board portfolio of solutions for optimal broiler nutrition and egg production.

Feed for Ruminants

Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein and essential nutrients in the overall metabolism, therefore critical for milk production. If rations are deficient in only one amino acid, production will be less than optimal. In most dairy cow rations, the first limiting amino acid is methionine. Our ruminant solutions Mepron ® and Kpron are supporting cow farmers.

Feed for Swine

A precisely balanced diet is key for an efficient, transparent and sustainable swine production. An amino acid composition optimizes both livestock performance and swine feed production. We have developed an array of sophisticated yet easy-to-use tools to support our partners in achieving this balance and making swine production more efficient. 

Health Ingredients

To boost the performance, stability and bioavailability of dietary supplements and functional foods.

Intelligent Data Management Software for the Poultry Industry

Porphyrio’s expertise builds on the latest know-how of Big Data technology and Biostatistics combined with Poultry Science and Poultry Production. It is that expertise that enables us to offer you systems to support you in optimizing your business process to the fullest.

Monomers and Polyisocyanates for Polyurethane Coatings

VESTANAT contains aliphatic and cycloaliphatic diisocyanate monomers for light stable PU resins and elastomers, waterborne polyurethane dispersions as well as cycloaliphatic polyisocyanates for durable polyurethane coatings.

May it be building blocks for resin synthesis, hardeners for 2K coatings or blocked systems for 1K applications we have the right solution for can coatings, OEM clear coats as well as wood coatings and plastic coatings. We offer IPDI, H12MDI, TMDI, T1890 and more.

Precision Livestock Farming

PLF, or so-called ‘Precision Livestock Farming’, adds advanced technologies and software to the farming process, with the goal of optimizing the contribution per animal. But to really get the most out of Precision Livestock Farming, a holistic approach is required to overcome less effective isolated solutions. This connects the main areas of focus: nutrition, health, and farming. Therefore, we want to ensure the welfare of the animals and the discharge of the farmers.

Silica for the Animal Feed Industry  

Silica is an outstanding carrier to convert liquid or paste feed additives into free flowing powders. Silica keeps your premixes free flowing and protect them from caking.

Silica for the Food Industry

Silica ensures that powdered foods and ingredients remain highly pourable and free flowing. Our products help to avoid such agglomerates efficiently, enabling you to deliver a consistent product quality to every place of the world.

TEGO® RC SILICONS for Self-Adhesive Products

Our UV curing release coatings generate new business opportunities for our customers by helping them overcome problems that traditionally cured silicones cannot solve. Our high-performance thermal cuing silicone coatings are highly effective for applications including self-adhesive and linerless labels, graphic arts, tapes and hygienic products like diaper tapes.


Veramaris produces the two essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA from natural marine algae for animal nutrition. Our sustainable technology could be a complete replacement for fish-based ingredients for a variety of species.

By combining expertise in cultivating natural marine algae with know-how in industrial-scale fermentation, we have developed an innovation that transforms feed nutrition.
