Development on 100% bio-based NFC regarding formulations (e.g. fiber types) and processing (e.g. injection moulding and extrusion are in the focus) will be continued. Processes for the post-treatment of moulded parts by brushing, painting, coating, printing will be further evaluated. Extension of the permanent accompanying literature study with reference to new bioplastics and production of filaments for 3D printing.

Dietary protein reduction in combination with simultaneous supply of limiting amino acids reduces environmental load with nitrogen and helps to save feeding costs. To take full advantage of low protein diets, the energy supply must also be taken into account. With high protein diets, excess absorbed amino acids are converted into nitrogenous waste which is excreted through urine and faeces into the environment. The goal of the present study is to investigate the effect of a crude protein reduction under different energy levels with consideration of the ideal-protein on zootechnical and slaughter performance, as well as carcass characteristic parameters of fattening pigs.
