Ecobiol is designed for the use in poultry production and aquaculture and was acquired by Evonik from the Spanish company NOREL S.A. in 2016. Ecobiol helps to maintain the natural gut balance and has a positive effect on the gut microbiome that has been scientifically proven (in-vitro- and in in-vivo). 

“Ecobiol is new in our portfolio. We are convinced of the product’s high potential and its applicability in various fields by virtue of unique properties”, says Emmanuel Auer, Head of the Animal Nutrition business line at Evonik. “We consider Ecobiol a key element towards the reduction of antibiotic growth promoters. This way, we contribute to healthy and sustainable animal nutrition.” 

“The product Ecobiol shows very positive results in both poultry and aquaculture, for instance under various stress conditions. That has been demonstrated in scientific studies as well as in commercial use. For our customers in South East Asia this is of focal interest, particularly in shrimp farming”, says Peter Freisler, Head of Gut Health Solutions. 

Evonik’s Animal Nutrition business line has over 60 years of experience in the manufacture of essential amino acids and provides solutions for efficient and sustainable animal nutrition to customers in over 100 countries. Evonik will make a contribution with innovative feed additives beyond amino acids in order to create additional value for its customers. 

Evonik’s products and services in the area of animal nutrition play a key role worldwide in the production of healthy and affordable food while preserving natural resources and reducing the ecological footprint.
