What Is Rendering?
The rendering process comprises of several steps to sterilise and stabilise the material, segregate the fat and protein and treat them into marketable products.
Rendering recovers valuable protein and oil and is the most bio secure method of processing animal by-products. The products are valuable raw materials used in the manufacture of pet foods, pharmaceuticals, organic fertilisers, biofuels, cosmetics and construction.
The Environmental Benefits of Rendering
Essentially rendering is the recycling and re-use of animal by-products that would otherwise need to be landfilled.
Products derived from rendering are sustainable and carbon neutral, consuming less energy and resources than their primary alternatives. This gives them a lower carbon footprint and reduces the overall environmental impact of the meat industry.
