Animal waste disposal methods: how to get the most out of carcass remains with a rendering plant
There are several animal waste disposal methods that allow you to get rid of carcass remains at your farm or slaughterhouse. Pit burials, transporting waste to landfills, and incinerators are all viable options. What’s important is that you do not endanger human or animal health, and leave a minimal impact on the environment.
However, animal waste disposal doesn’t only have to be about adhering to environmental regulations. Today’s technology allows for a very practical and profitable win-win scenario. In this article, we will discuss how you can recycle all your animal carcasses into valuable by-products with Celitron’s on-site rendering plant!
Animal waste disposal with rendering: how is it better than other carcass removal methods?
As a method of animal waste disposal, rendering deserves a special mention for many reasons. With special rendering plants, the environmental risks of removing animal remains can be greatly reduced.
For example, incinerators are still popular due to their undeniable efficiency, but they can represent an environmental hazard due to air pollution issues. Rendering farm animal remains also produces far fewer greenhouse emissions compared to other animal waste disposal methods like composting and landfilling. Furthermore, burial sites and landfills have specific rule sets, and you will have to store hazardous waste before it can be transported away.
Rendering plants not only make the animal waste disposal process more practical, but more profitable as well, as you can recycle valuable by-products from the remains of farm animals like cattle, swine, poultry, sheep, and even fish.
With this animal waste disposal method, you can get back organic feed and fertilizer from the remains of animals collected at slaughterhouses and farms. Rendering plants can treat whole carcasses, including skin, blood, fat, and even feathers, and render them into quality, high-protein animal feed that is rich in fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins as well. They are highly digestible and can be easily incorporated into the diet of farm animals to increase their performance and growth rate.
Animal waste disposal with Celitron’s onsite rendering plant: the ISS AGRI Facility
The great news is, animal waste disposal through rendering can all be done on-site thanks to Celitron’s own special plant: the ISS AGRI Facility!
Using Celitron’s rendering plant for the disposal of animal waste has many benefits, including:
- No contamination risks: the rendered animal-origin meals will be completely sterile thanks to the use of extremely high temperatures. You will be able to treat whole carcasses immediately, meaning you won’t have to deal with storing hazardous waste at your site anymore.
- Cost-effective operation: the ISS Agri is equipped with its own energy management system to ensure an operation that doesn’t cut into your profits. It also needs much less steam to complete the animal waste disposal process compared to most rendering plants.
- No transportation costs: since you can treat all your waste on-site, you will save even more money in the long run by avoiding high transportation costs.
- Small environmental footprint: Animal waste disposal with the ISS produces ZERO harmful emissions. Celitron’s on-site rendering plant was also designed as a closed system with an odour filter to avoid bad odours from coming out. Not to mention that not having to transport animal waste away from your site already reduces the burden on the environment.
Animal waste disposal: these are the animal by-products you can recycle with Celitron’s on-site rendering plant.
The ISS AGRI animal waste disposal system helps you recover the fat content of the carcasses through the rendering process. It is a prominent component in animal feed, and is especially crucial in the diet of poultry, as saturated and unsaturated fatty acids play a key role in their performance. In the case of pigs and beef, animal fat provides a higher energy intake.
In short, it plays a large role in the health and growth of animals. It is more digestible than palm oil, reinforces the immune system, and improves the muscle-to-fat ratio.
A protein-rich animal feed obtained from the disposal of fish carcasses, which comes out of the ISS AGRI animal waste disposal system as a dry, flour-like powder. It is an excellent, much more sustainable alternative to soy-based fish meal, and is widely used in fish farms. Apart from aquaculture, it can also be used as a quality feed for chickens, swine, and even pets.
Fish meal is not only rich in protein, but also contains essential fatty acids, minerals, vitamins, and phospholipids, which help increase the growth rate of farm animals.
Meat and bone meal
Obtained from whole carcasses and slaughterhouse waste. The animal waste disposal process of the ISS AGRI also helps you keep the high protein content of the treated animal by-products with a relatively low steam sterilization temperature that doesn’t go over 121 degrees Celsius.
After the animal waste disposel process is done and the by-products are treated, you will be able to collect animal fat as well as a dry, protein-rich powder.
Both meat and bone meal are highly nutritious, easily digestible, protein-rich animal feed, and due to their high levels of phosphorus, they are essential for bone formation. What’s more, they can also be used as a quality, organic fertilizer for your crops!
After the rendering process is completed in the ISS Agri plant, you can also recover another protein-rich, dried animal feed from the blood of livestock. Blood is highly perishable, which is why an on-site animal waste disposal is even more practical, as you can process these by-products immediately.
It is an excellent supplement for the diet of all kinds of farm animals (including fish and even insect farms) thanks to its high protein, lysine, and mineral content It can also easily be mixed with other fodder. Not to mention it can also be used as a fertilizer!
