On this occasion, Mrs Pi Nyvall, Olmix Group’s Scientific Director, contributed to the event through a dynamic presentation that first shone a spotlight on the ‘Monalisa’ project (2002-2006), Olmix’s European programme that aimed to develop a new alternative in animal hygiene and feed based on clays and seaweeds:
“For Olmix Group, innovation is the key and IT is an essential part of the Group’s development. In 2002 we invested in an ambitious project called ‘Monalisa’, with the aim of developing a new natural alternative based on clay and biopolymers extracted from algae. This new innovative technology was intended for applications in animal safety, hygiene and welfare, and we surrounded ourselves by renowned partners such as the CEVA (Centre of Estudy and Valorization of Algae) LMPC – Mulhouse (Laboratory of controlled porosity Materials) and Adiveter (specialist in microbiological control of food and raw materials) to carry out the programme”, she explained.
The products developed within this project are today some of the companys bestsellers representing 13% of annual turnover and the positive impact of the Monalisa project is still an asset for the development of Olmix Group.
