UK - Distillers Dried Grains and Solubles (DDGS) will be available late spring 2009 from the Ensus plant on Teeside.

This plant, which is currently being built, will ferment up to 1m tonnes of wheat producing some 350,000 tonnes of DDGS. Whilst this material could be co-fired, or exported, both economics and politics strongly suggest that feeding is the most appropriate outlet.

The initial reaction by many is that this material would largely be destined for dairy and beef feeds and indeed this is a market for the material. However the cattle market is seasonal, largely based on the west of the country, and for feeder wagons pelleted material is preferred. There is a ready market for wheat DDGS on the doorstep for pig feeding.
