In the framework of the Central Hungarian Operational Program (Közép-Magyarországi Operatív Program), Dr. BATA Hungarian Canadian Biotechnology Research Development Ltd. was awarded 97 500 000 HUF of subsidies from EU and domestic central budget sources to develop environmentally friendly, food- safety-precision trace element of premixes for the commercial livestock.
The project’s total budget is 150 million HUF.
Our company completed the project KMOP-1.1.1-07/1-2008-0013 on the 31st May 2011.
The predecessor of Dr. BATA Ltd. was founded in 1987 by Hungarian chemical engineers with the aim to research and develop feed additives produced by fermentation processes, and for the development of production and distribution of the technology. During the KMOP-1.1.1-07/1-2008-0013 project, we designed an innovative development of the microelement-glycine product family used for feeding the commercial livestock. Compositions contain the most important trace elements (zinc, copper, iron, manganese) in organic binding, these are used more in the living organism than in the inorganic form.
Throughout the development activity we have developed the trace element-containing product family (named GLICINOPLEX), and developed the manufacturing technology. Since then, we have introduced the market sales of the product line.
Throughout the project a close cooperation has emerged with four national research bases (Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Corvinus University of Budapest, Kaposvár University, Szent István University).
During the project, laboratory equipment supporting the research work as well as pilot and plant equipment (zinc and manganese glycine production equipment) were procured.
The project’s implementation helped our enterprise to improve our market competitiveness, to protect our employee’s workplace, and help the consumers to reduce the environmental impact of the livestock.
Further development of the project led to containing the product in a microcapsule, this means the drugs get to the appropriate tract of the animal’s digestive system and are utilized more efficiently. We sell our products not only in Hungary, but also deliver them to the Far-Eastern and South-American markets. As the product has been further developed, the formulation can withstand being transported long distances by ships. It can also be transported in tropical climate without adverse effects to the product, thus further market openings are possible.back
