ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel has appointed Marco Baumann vice president Business Unit Capital.

Baumann was previously Animal Feed Industry Director within the company, where he was instrumental in establishing ANDRITZ as a strategic partner for plant solutions for feed producers around the globe.

A native of South Africa who studied business economics in Switzerland, Baumann’s 30 years of experience in plant engineering has given him the in-depth knowledge and experience required to master the complex challenges of the feed and biofuel industries are facing today.

Baumann's goal is to continue to position ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel at the forefront of global issues, addressing challenges such as feeding a growing population. In addition, he will strive to build long-term relationships with customers, enabling ANDRITZ to realize its vision of sustainability and success.

“ANDRITZ is a company that is ever-evolving, and to be a part of that evolution is an opportunity I take very seriously,” said Baumann. “At present, we face fundamental challenges in terms of feeding the global population and addressing environmental issues such as reducing CO2 emissions. They must be faced head on, and we are uniquely placed as a business to make a tangible impact – from pioneering the process changes required to use alternative proteins in feed, to optimizing biomass fuel production.”
