  • Global science-based companies enter up into agreement to enable transparent environmental assessment & accelerate impact reduction of the animal protein value chain
  • Cooperation combines BASF’s deep value chain sustainability experience in animal nutrition and Evonik’s extensive knowledge of feed formulation and customer insights

BASF and Evonik entered into an agreement, granting Evonik certain non-exclusive licensing rights to Opteinics™ - BASF’s digital solution to increase understanding and reduce the environmental footprint of the feed and animal protein industries. Evonik integrates the digital ready-to-use sustainability platform Opteinics™ into its global feed consultancy services. Combining BASF's digital sustainability solution Opteinics™ with Evonik’s innovative farm management tools and sustainability services will help customers to produce more sustainable feed and animal protein.
Opteinics™ is a software solution launched by BASF in 2021 to measure, analyze and minimize the environmental impact of animal protein, with an emphasis on animal feed production. Currently the software offers modules for pig and poultry production and can be integrated with feed formulation software.

Opteinics™ for pork has recently been fully verified to conform with the ISO 14040 and 14044 LCA standards as well as with the UN Food & Agriculture Organization Livestock Environmental Assessment & Performance (LEAP) Partnership guidelines.  Applications for the dairy value chain and for the optimization of compound feed mixtures will follow soon.

With the use of Opteinics™, Evonik can even better support the livestock industry to make significant progress in fighting climate change, safeguarding ecosystems, and ensuring health and well-being as it works to achieve sustainable food production.

“BASF has over 25 years of expertise in life cycle assessment. Based on our profound knowledge in sustainability improvement, we have independently developed Opteinics™. With Evonik, we have a strong partner to make it a preferred and leading solution as a digital sustainability platform for the global feed industry,” says Manuel Rez, Director Global Product Management Performance Ingredients & Solutions and Marketing BASF Animal Nutrition.

“We are incorporating BASF’s ready-to-use software Opteinics™ into our comprehensive sustainability solutions for customers,” explains Dr. Stefan Mack, head of Service Marketing at Evonik's Animal Nutrition business line. “Along with Evonik’s global sustainability feed consulting services, it will help to deliver expert knowledge, built on decades of expertise, research, and extensive data”.

BASF and Evonik are already targeting further developments in digital sustainability offerings as they both aim to help the animal production sector become more sustainable.
