The Rendering Process
Renewal, Not Disposal
How Does Rendering Work?
These products can only be used for energy or fuel production (e.g. incineration in cement manufacturing, the main ingredient of biofuel)
The feedstock for these is high risk, such as specified risk material (for example, animals that have tested positive for BSE), fallen stock with a risk of disease, and international catering waste.
These products can be used for industrial applications (e.g. as fuel, for fur feed, and as fertiliser).
Category 2 feedstock is material that isn’t fit for human consumption and fallen stock without SRM. It is not fit for animal consumption.
These products can be used for human contact products (e.g. ingredients in soaps and cosmetics, added to pet food and animal feeds).
The feedstock for this category is material fit for human consumption at the point of slaughter and domestic catering waste.
