NORSUS has conducted a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) for SoftAcid® V and formic acid for animal feed. When comparing the seven impact categories, SoftAcid V surfaced as the overall most sustainable choice.
LCA: SoftAcid vs formic acid
The study was performed in 2019 by NORSUS, Norway’s leading independent research institute for LCA and other environmental impact analyses.
The LCA includes seven impact categories, and SoftAcid V* has a lower impact in all the impact categories. Overall, SoftAcid V is the most sustainable choice of the two products, with lower CO2 emissions and consumption of fossil fuels.
By replacing pure formic acid with SoftAcid V you reduce your CO2 emissions by 38%.
*SoftAcid V is a product formulated for commercial feed production. It can be used in feed for all animal species.
