Old Bridge Chemicals introduces Emerald-C copper carbonate-based mineral feed ingredient

Free-flowing, green powder is ideally suited for humid environments.

Old Bridge Chemicals, North America’s largest manufacturer of copper and zinc compounds, announced the introduction of Emerald-C copper carbonate-based mineral feed ingredient.

Chloride-free and OMRI-listed, Emerald-C is proven to enhance animal health and performance, the company said, noting that the free-flowing, green powder is ideally suited for humid environments. Extremely easy to handle and blend, Emerald-C is non-hydroscopic and insoluble in water.

Dr. Joanne Small, Emerald-C product manager, said, “Emerald-C offers the simplest and most concentrated form of copper available with greater bioavailability than copper sulfate. It is highly stable and non-reactive with vitamins and other essential premix ingredients. As a bound copper, Emerald-C becomes active in the digestive system, where it counts.”

Emerald-C is manufactured in the U.S. at the company’s hazard analysis and critical control points and American Feed Industry Assn. certified Safe Feed/Safe Food facility. Independent analyses of Emerald-C demonstrate that the product easily meets rigid European Union criteria for the presence of dioxins and polychlorinated biphenols, the company said.
