Share this article

World protein demand is growing quickly.  The biofuels industry is uniquely suited to take advantage of these opportunities and provide the higher purity proteins the world needs.  However, not all markets are the same and not all proteins are the same. 

Fluid Quip Technologies’ MSC™ Systems have been producing high-value protein for over 12 years.  Through partnerships with worldwide protein marketers, much has been learned.  This presentation will share information on the growing protein trends and products needed to fill those trends.  This includes focus on the value proposition for facilities based on market segments and the type of protein products produced, as well as a technology overview of the FQT MSC™ system.
