DSM-firmenich, the leading innovator in health, nutrition, and beauty has recently launched a shrimp module for Sustell™, allowing shrimp farmers to map, reduce the full environmental footprint of their operations and meet environmental sustainability targets.

It is the first ever online life cycle assessment (LCA) platform tailored to commercial shrimp farming. The new module offers on-demand environmental footprinting for shrimp production of all stages, from hatchery, to nursery, to grow out, in addition to a feed module which is a critical contributor to LCA in any animal farming system. 

The new module was developed in collaboration with Grupo Almar, from Ecuador, one of the top 5 global shrimp producers who will be applying this technology across their farms as they look to deliver on their sustainability ambitions.

Wolfgang Harten, General Manager/COO of Grupo Almar said, “When we partnered with DSM-firmenich last year, we knew we wanted to implement technologies that help us improve the environmental sustainability of our shrimp production. We knew when we chose Sustell™ we would be able to go beyond measurement by taking ownership of our full environmental footprint, and now, with the new module for shrimp, we are able to take our sustainability efforts one step further.”

Louise Buttle, Sustell™ lead for Aqua & Global Key Account Manager at DSM-firmenich Animal Nutrition & Health stated, “With the introduction of a specific module for shrimp in Sustell™, shrimp producers now have the platform available to conduct full lifecycle assessment at scale, ensuring a strong return on investment and providing credible and accurate footprinting. Sustell™ unlocks new value opportunities for producers, from improving farm productivity to ecolabeling and sustainable finance, for example. Sustell™ for shrimp demonstrates our commitment and continued innovations to further develop the sustainable production of seafood from aquaculture.”
