Neutralisation des eaux usées : La nouvelle voie…


TIMAB Magnesium, avec son équipe dédiée aux applications environnementales est de plus en plus sollicitée pour fournir aux industriels l’hydroxyde de magnésium pour la neutralisation des eaux usées.

Dans tous les procédés industriels nécessitant de l’eau, un soin tout particulier est apporté au traitement des eaux usées avant leur rejet dans le milieu naturel.


Pour toutes ces applications, la soude caustique est encore le réactif le plus couramment utilisé pour son pouvoir de neutralisation lors du traitement des eaux usées.

Néanmoins, ce produit est de plus en plus mis en cause, car il présente plusieurs inconvénients notoires.


TIMAB Magnesium propose une alternative exclusive : l’hydroxyde de magnésium, plus pertinente en termes de sécurité, économie, et efficacité.

pHix-up results published in The Journal of Dairy Science !


TIMAB Magnesium has launched “pHix-up”, a natural solution to maintain ruminal pH and address this frequent issue in dairy cows. The development of this Magnesium-based solution is the result of extensive research. In-vitro and in-vivo trials have demonstrated its high level of performance. Already appreciated by the market, its results have been published by the prestigious Journal of Dairy Science® !

The official journal of the American Dairy Science Association®, Journal of Dairy Science® (JDS) is the top-ranked dairy research journal in the world. JDS is what we call a “peer-reviewed” journal, meaning that our trial design, results and conclusions have been validated by independent experts in dairy nutrition.
It is an indisputable guarantee of the scientific community. Another step forward for pHix-up


Successful World Dairy Expo in the US 


From the 2nd to 6th of October, TIMAB Magnesium was present at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. Our animal feed US team along with R&D team and our distribution partners were there to introduce pHix-up, our specialty product dedicated to dairy cows.


This event, visited by more than 60,000 persons from more than 10 countries, was an excellent opportunity to share time, to strengthen our partnership with our commercial partners, share our latest results with nutritionists, and to exchange with the numerous dairy farmers attending this event.

pHix-up: securing dairy cows grazing season in spring

Spring : the hidden side of turning out of grass

Dairy farms with high production potential can encounter different problems related to the farming system. In spring, a metabolic disease risk appears; grass tetany (or hypomagnesemia). At this time, the young grass at pasture is rich in soluble nitrogen, fermentable carbohydrates and lower in cellulose. In addition, the magnesium to potassium ratio (Mg2+/K+) is low, which can cause a decrease in blood magnesium rate of animals, causing the grass tetany. This disease is characterized by neuromuscular and digestive disorders, accompanied by a decrease in ingestion and milk production, which can lead to the animals death in the most serious cases.

During the same period presence of fermentable carbohydrates, associated with a low cellulose proportion in the ingested young grass, leads to a vast increase in the production of volatile fatty acids in the rumen. The accumulation of these compounds causes a pH acidification which can lead to a sub-acute ruminal acidosis (pH < 5.8 for more than 3 hours). This induces a decrease in animal food intake, milk production and milk fat content. Furthermore, this causes an increase in the production cost. The economic loss is estimated on average at 1 euro per cow per day (Plaizier et al., 2008).

  • pHix-up, a unique solution against sub-acute ruminal acidosis and grass tetany

To prevent acidosis risk, a buffer or alkalizing solution must be added to the ration. After three years of research and in vivo studies, TIMAB Magnesium has developed pHix-up, an innovative natural alkalizer. Using a unique association of different sources of magnesium oxide, pHix-up has a fast and durable effect by maintaining ruminal pH to an optimum value. Its action is reflected in an increase in milk production and milk fat content, as well as a general improvement in animal welfare. In addition, pHix-up contains 48.5% highly available magnesium, so it also provides an adequate supplementation during the grass tetany risk period.
