Importance of Protein in Aquaculture Feed

In aquaculture, feed represents 40-50% of the production costs and with protein requirements for fish ranging from 18-50%, the importance of protein in aquaculture feed is readily apparent. The percentage of required protein varies by species with tilapia, one of the most common fish raised in aquaculture, in the 32-38% range and hybrid striped bass

How Wheat Starch Can Fit Into a Gluten Free Diet

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barely so you may wonder how wheat starch can fit into a gluten free diet. For over a decade, wheat starch specifically processed to remove wheat starch has been allowed to be labeled as gluten free in Europe but it is a recent allowance in the

Battery Grade Lithium Carbonate

If fine particles are good, are finer particles better? The ongoing nanoparticle revolution continues to challenge fine powder producers with the pursuit for finer and finer particle size distributions.  The ultra-high surface-to-volume ratios of nanoparticles are very appealing to some producers. Will the future of battery grade lithium carbonate applications lead producers to pursue a
