Aquafeed extrusion course

Aquafeed extrusion course

Hendelse avsluttet
24. Apr - 26. Apr

This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes, and the formulation of extruded aquafeeds.

Centre for Feed Technology together with the Australian company FoodStream is happy to announce that the Aquafeed Extrusion Technology course at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) in Aas is offered.

The extrusion specialist Dennis Forte is the main lecturer. He has been presenting extrusion training in different countries two decades.

The 3 days course will cover the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion process and the formulation of extruded aquafeeds with focus on novel feed materials. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in our pilot plant at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences.

Examples in product formulation and the design of extrusion processes will be included to demonstrate application of the theory.

The provided background will be focused on general extrusion technology; however, it will be specifically directed at aquafeed extrusion. The course applies to both single and twin-screw extrusion technology through topics of extruders basics and their configuration. In order to understand extruder dies and extruder instability regarding chemical and physical changes inside the extruder barrel will be explained. Important aspects of peripheral systems (eg raw materials pre-processing, preconditioning, product drying) are also covered.

I 2015, we also arranged such a course, which you can read about here (in Norwegian). If questions feel free to send questions to

The course is a collaboration between Centre for Feed Technology at NMBU and the Australian FoodStream.
