R&D's Engineering and Automation team manage and supply both the software and HMI needed for the project to become a reality. The plant is being built close to Ausumgaard biogas plant to which the grass protein will provide dry matter to increase the biogas production. 

This is the first time in Denmark that a sustainable and locally produced plant of this kind has been developed and installed. The main product will consist of a highly sustainable concentrated grass protein that initially will be used for animal nutrition, such as pig and poultry feed. This offers producers a climate-friendly alternative and a more sustainable process compared to soya protein, which is currently imported.

We are very pleased to begin the installation of the plant and we expect to start testing with clover grass in week 28.

The Tailor Grass Project is a GUDP funded project, which means that it is supported by a subvention from ‘Grønt Udviklings- og Demonstrationsprogram'. In collaboration with SEGES, Vestjyllands Andel, and Ausumgaard, R&D have the opportunity to develop a plant that can extract protein from grass.
