Fish is not just one of the staple foods in all the world's coastal regions, its high-quality constituents – from omega 3 fatty acids to iodine – mean it is also becoming a significant component of a healthy diet worldwide. On the other hand, most of the residues are disposed of or processed into cheap animal feed, although the skins do for instance contain valuable proteins. In addition to fillet production, Vinh Hoan Corp., one of the largest pangasius exporters in Vietnam, has therefore built up its own production line for collagen powder. The powder is now used in food supplements, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. For this, NETZSCH Pumps & Systems, supplied a combination of a high-performance twin shaft macerator and a hygienic full-metal rotary lobe pump.
