Since 2004, Geohellas S.A. has been exploiting the unique attapulgite deposits in Europe located in Northern Greece.

Innovative “particle dynamic treatment” methods applied by Geohellas S.A. enhance the surface properties of attapulgite for animal feed applications, inducing optimal binding actions for mycotoxins and bacterial toxinogenic strains of E. coli and by Clostridia perfrigens, thus protecting animal intestinal epithelium cells. This provides reinforced digestive security and an advanced health status and growth performance.

Attapulgite-based products of Geohellas S.A. are considered as natural alternatives for growth promotion that could substitute medicated digestive enhancers.

Geohellas manufactures four premium series of products for feeding applications: (a) ULTRAFED® and (b) ULTRAFED® PREMIUM with plant extracts with antibacterial action (growth promoter series), (c) SANFED® ULTRA (toxin binder series), (d) SANFED® POWDER & SANFED® PREMIX (pellet binder, free flow agent series).

Geohellas has also developed a series of products with elaborated mixtures of attapulgites for the bio-protection of livestock buildings: AXORB®, AXORB® A/S, AXORB® P, AXORB®-F and AXORB® PVX. These are used as bedding conditioners for various species, absorbing moisture, ammonia/odours and reducing bacterial counts.

AGLEV® SI and AGLEV® FT attapulgite based soil improvers and agricultural carriers will be also presented at the EuroTier fair this year.
