As the first phase of the Belarusian agro-industrial complex (BNBC) is coming to an end, Zhengchang is planning for the second phase of the project. They have interviewed the heads of various department in charge and listened to their opinions.

The Belarusian National Biotechnological Corporation is the largest and unique agro-industrial complex in the Republic of Belarus and on the territory of the entire former USSR.

This is a modern, high-tech project focused on export and import substitution. The main goal is the organisation of deep grain processing, the production of highly productive balanced compound feeds and premixes.

Part of the complex is the factories created by the forces of the Zhengchang company. They include:

  • silos for cleaning and storage grain
  • conveyor system for moving grain to feed mills
  • production of compound feeds for cattle and poultry
  • production of compound feeds for pigs

'All equipment is designed and manufactured for production of feed for animals of different age group,' says Alexander Bildyukevich, Deputy Director of BNBC.

Initially, raw grain is delivered by rail and motor transport to the granary (to silos). Unloading is carried out by the operators of the granary into silos in accordance with the quality, type, batch of raw materials. The meal is delivered by rail directly to the operational bin. A plant for the production of compound feeds for cattle and poultry. To obtain a ready-made balanced feed, the plant provides for successive stages of the production process.

First stage is the production of loose compound feed. At this plant, it is carried out in two sections:

A - for poultry

B - for cattle.

And includes a sequential set of operations:

1. Grain supply from operational tanks, cleaning from metal-magnetic impurities, moving to the mill;

  • feeding of meal from operational tanks, cleaning from impurities, moving to the mill;
  • feeding of container protein raw materials into blockage pits, cleaning from large and metal-magnetic impurities, moving to crushing.

2. Milling of the purified raw materials and moving it to dosing and mixing.

3. Feeding and cleaning of mineral and protein raw materials from large and metal-magnetic impurities, moving to dosing and mixing.

4. Supply of liquid components for dosing and mixing from operational tanks:

  • oil (two sections)
  • molasses (only for section B)
  • liquid methionine (only for section A)

5. Manual input and dosing of micro-components for mixing.
 

'Production parameters: mixing, pelleting are perfectly adjusted. The high-tech equipment of the Zhengchang company is mainly used. This makes possibility to produce high-quality products and also supply it abroad,' says Anastasia Chaiko, Head of poultry and cattle line.

The second stage is the pelleting of feed:

1. Feeding and cleaning of feed from large and metal-magnetic impurities.

2. Steam treatment of feed at certain parameters of temperature and steam pressure.

3. The pelleting process.

4. The cooling process.

5. Crumbling of pellets into grits (if it is required for the customer).

6. Sifting of pellets to obtain a high-quality commercial type of feed.

7. Ready-made pellets (or grits) are served for packaging in bags and big bags or to the point of bulk shipment.

8. The laying of bags on pallets is robotic.
 

'The plant for the production of compound feeds for pigs is similar in type of equipment and technological processes. It differs in the number of production lines and the presence of an extruder,' says Konstantin Gordeev, Head of pig line.

Important advantages of the extruder are: economy, high digestibility of feed, stimulation of growth and strengthening of immunity, hygiene of feeding.

The process of pelleting compound feed for pigs begins with the supply of loose compound feed to an air conditioner mixer for steam treatment.

Then the moistened feed enters the pellet mill and passes through the holes of the Die under pressure and high temperature. Dense pellets are formed. Next, the cooler. The pellets are cooled by air and moved by means of a chain conveyor to the hopper of the finished product.

The final process is loading pelleted feed into vehicles.

 

'All processes of production of compound feed for pigs are carried out automatically from the control panel,' says Vyacheslav Rai, Zhengchang representative.

'Our company can produce almost any recipe. And the plus is that all our main raw materials are located in Belarus. The advantages of our plants are their almost fully automation. All this, of course, is influence on the cost of our products: it is much lower than the national average. Modern equipment allows precise dosing of all components. Thus, the customer gets what he ordered.

'Currently, this complex ensures the storage of more than 400 thousand tons of grain. This ensures the smooth operation of the entire plant, and it is also of strategic importance for this company. The equipment of the feed mill for the production of feed for pigs has the technical ability to produce feed specifically for each customer. Under his specific recipe, agreed with him.

'Cooperation between Belarus and China, the implementation of such a unique and large - scale project as the BNBC is a new, innovative step in the development of the agricultural industry of the Republic of Belarus.

'The Zhengchang company has made a significant contribution to the implementation of the project. It is the first enterprise of this level and scale in our country: high-tech and efficient,' says the principal of Belarusian National Biotechnological Corporation.
