.. WELCOME TO THE PROTEIN RESEARCH FOUNDATION ..

Welcome to the Protein Research Foundation

The main objectives of the Protein Research Foundation (PRF) are to replace imported protein used in animal feed with locally produced protein and to encourage the better utilisation of this protein. The objectives are promoted through research funding and technology transfer.

Funding is available for research on appropriate protein crops, oil seeds, fish meal and other protein sources and to improve the efficiency of utilisation of these proteins in the livestock, poultry and aquaculture industries in South Africa.
 

Die Prote´ennavorsingstigting (PNS) se hoofdoelstellings is die vervanging van ingevoerde prote´en met plaaslikgeproduseerde prote´en, asook die beter benutting van prote´en. Hierdie doelstellings word bevorder deur die befondsing van navorsing asook tegnologie-oordrag.

Navorsing word befonds ten opsigte van toepaslike verbandhoudende gewasse, oliesade, vismeel en ander prote´enbronne asook die aanwending en benutting daarvan deur die belangrikste vis-, akwakultuur-, dier- en pluimveespesies eie aan die Suid-Afrikaanse mark.

in Brazil, about 25% of cars run on biofuels (mostly sugar and soyabeans). Studies have shown that soya protein is 13 times more energy efficient than organic dairy protein.

over the past 12 years, crops improved through agricultural biotechnology, have produced more nutritious and higher yields and consequently higher profit margins. In the history of agriculture, no other advances have been adopted as quickly. In addition, through the use of these crops, the US has decreased carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to removing 6.3 million cars off the roads. These findings show that biotechnology is safe, contributing to increased human health as well as environmental and agricultural sustainability.

with the worldwide emphasis on environmental conservation, soyabean based candle wax is offering an alternative to petroleum-paraffin waxes with additional advantages such as enhanced fragrance holding ability, improved pouring characteristics and easier use in existing candle manufacturing factories.

in the US, conservation tillage is used in more than 65% of the country's soybean production areas, resulting in a 93% decrease in soil erosion, a 70% reduction in herbicide runoff, and a 50% reduction in fuel use.
