North Kazakhstan enterprise exports gluten to Europe, US
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 16
By Fakhri Vakilov - Trend:
North Kazakhstan plant for deep processing of grain LLP BioOperations last year produced products worth 4 billion tenge, Trend reports via Kazakh media.
Former plant "Biohim" in Tayinshinsky area stood on the conservation of more than 8 years. At one of the meetings, governor of the North Kazakhstan region, Kumar Aksakalov, said that the regional budget lost 1 billion tenge due to an idle enterprise.
Recently, "Biohim" changed its name to BioOperations LLP, and began the restoration of production. Last year, they invested more than 7 billion tenge, created 400 jobs, launched a shop for the production of starch and gluten.
The plant capacity reaches 300,000 tons of grain per year. The plant uses local raw materials. The head of the region has repeatedly stressed that deep processing of grain is a promising direction.
“The capacity of plant allows us to process 7 percent of the wheat produced. With deep processing of 1 ton of wheat, we get 343 kilograms of starch at a price of 120 tenge per kilogram, 85 kilograms of gluten - 645 tenge per kg, 354 kg of feed – 36,000 each. As a result, the cost of finished products from one ton of wheat is 108,000 tenge. This is twice as much, compared to raw materials which 56,000 tenge per ton,” Aksakalov noted.
Now the plant gets gluten and starch. North Kazakhstan gluten is registered in the register of suppliers of gluten and is exported to Europe and the USA. The general director of the company, Almas Kalimurzin stated that other markets are being studied, which can be accessed with gluten. Starch is being exported to Uzbekistan and Russia.
The next step is to launch a bioethanol production plant - a high-octane ecological fuel bio-additive based on deep processing of grain. Work has already begun. Production capacity will be 36,000 tons per year.
In 2021, the plant is planning to launch the production of lysine. This is a modern supplement in feed to improve the growth of farm animals.
