Hydroblood is a project arising from innovative technology in which Talleres Azuara has been working for years

Talleres Azuara
Seal of Excellence

Talleres Azuara holds the patent that protects the technology used in the production plant from which a high nutritional value protein product is obtained.

Talleres Azuara has invested 3.5 million euros until 2020 in R&D for the implementation of a processing plant based on its proprietary technology that aims to obtain a protein concentrate that will serve as an ingredient for feed and food.

Our main objectives:

  • A new solution that will reduce environmental impact
  • Optimise the production process for animal proteins.

HYDROBLOOD is the new cost-effective blood processing plant for treating whole blood, thus optimising the way to obtain high-quality animal proteins.

A large amount of blood is treated as waste, but our technology is able to give it new value as a raw material for obtaining a high nutritional quality product.

The process known as Hydroblood is a safe, automatic, cost-effective, and very sustainable system that includes the collection and processing of raw materials.

The Hydroblood technology is capable of recovering 100% of the animal blood from approved slaughterhouses and converts it into a protein concentrate with high added value.

Ingredients with a great biological value for food and feed.

Proteins are obtained in the process to be used as an ingredient in different food formulations.

The main advantages of the process are:

  • Less investment (CAPEX)
  • Lower operating costs (OPEX)
  • On-site blood treatment→ Annual energy savings.
  • 8340 kg of CO2 per m3 of blood
    transformed into protein concentrate.
  • Treatment plant 8 m3 blood/day, the
    saving in emissiones generated is
    70.000 kilos CO2 /year

The main advantages of the product are:

  • High HEME iron content
  • Highly versatile uses
  • Does not alter organoleptic characteristics on products: colour, odour or taste
  • Higher protein concentration: 96% protein
  • Product with traceability, certification and health registration
  • Can be stored at room temperature, remaining stable
  • High digestibility: 95 %

We transform a raw material into a protein concentrate with a high nutritional value of high market demand.
