Agricultural waste and farm waste disposal methods: how to make the most out of animal carcass waste
If you work in the agricultural industry, you are responsible for finding adequate disposal methods that adhere to the current environmental regulations of your country. Inadequate practices not only result in a severe fine but can also be highly dangerous to our environment, as well as the farm animals at your site.
Finding the right agricultural waste disposal solution isn’t just about following the law: it’s also about making sure you can continue to work profitably without storage, transportation, and infection risks hindering your business.
In Celitron’s next article, we will be taking a look at the several agricultural waste disposal methods, and show you how you can make the most out of animal remains right at the site of your farm, with no storage or transportation issues!
Why is agricultural waste disposal so important for farms?
Finding the right waste disposal method isn’t just the responsibility of the agricultural industry. Removing waste sustainably and safely has become one of the most notable tasks of the 21st century.
Farms and slaughterhouses can deal much easier with carcasses if they already have a plan in advance, such as a contact with a licensed waste removal company. If an animal dies, it will be your responsibility (and in your interest) to remove the carcass from your site.
The problem is that animal carcasses are a source of hazardous waste, and if they aren’t stored properly, or transported away in the right conditions, they can infect other healthy animals, and humans as well. Other agricultural waste types like chemical pesticides can also harm the quality of soil and pollute water sources.
Agricultural waste disposal methods: how do farms usually dispose of their waste?
Fortunately for those working in the agricultural industry, there are many methods available to safely handle farm waste disposal. No matter the methods you choose to remove the carcasses of dead animals, this is what matters the most: avoiding potential danger to other animals, humans, and the environment we live in.
Disposing of agricultural and farm waste by incineration
Still one of the most popular methods of agricultural and farm waste disposal, and with good reason. It completely destroys all forms of waste, no matter the type or size of carcass. However, due to air pollution risks, they are far from being the most sustainable solution, and without proper filters, onsite incinerators can produce quite unpleasant smells at the site of farms and slaughterhouses.
Disposing of agricultural and farm waste by burial
A fast and simple method of removing carcasses if the right conditions are met in the non-porous soil. However, it does have limited availability in the EU and US states because of risks regarding water sources and soil quality that are closely located to the site of the burial.
Disposing of agricultural and farm waste at landfills
Licensed waste removal companies are more than reliable at removing dead animal carcasses from your agricultural site and transporting them to landfills. It’s no wonder they are such a popular solution. Still, you should keep in mind that since you have to pay for transportation costs, it can be quite an expensive method in the long term. Landfills may also have special requirements on how you need to prep your waste before it can be transported away by the agricultural waste removal company.
Agricultural waste disposal methods offered by Celitron: rendering farm animal waste
What if we told you that agricultural and farm waste disposal doesn’t just have to be about removing and destroying dead animal carcasses? Celitron’s waste removal methods use a unique, patented rendering agri-technology to not only help you dispose of farm waste and animal remains on-site, but also recycle them into useful by-products!
Agricultural waste disposal and recycling at the site of your animal farm
Celitron’s ISS AGRI Facility essentially works as an on-site rendering plant that can treat all parts of animal carcasses, including bones, feathers, and blood. Thanks to its flexible size, it can be used by smaller and bigger agricultural sites alike.
It uses a medical-grade steam sterilization technology to ensure no infectious material remains in the treated carcasses. The process is completely automated, and only needs about an hour to be completed, after which you will be able to recover animal fat, as well as protein-rich feed such as bone meal, feather meal, blood meal, and meat meal. By being able to recycle essential nutrients from animal carcasses, you can easily reincorporate these into the diet of your farm animals, or resell them to other agricultural sites in need. These animal by-products can not only be used as quality feed rich in minerals and vitamins, but also as an organic fertilizer!
