At College Group, production is segregated. Category 3 products are processed at a separate facility from Category 1 products to prevent contamination between different categories of waste and different species.

College Group Category
3
Products

Category 3 products are derived from by-products that are fit for human consumption but not consumed by humans for reasons of choice or lack of commercial value (for example, hooves, skin, bristles, feathers or blood). Our high-quality products supply the animal feed, fish feed, and pet food industries.

    Category 3 Tallow

    While Category 1 tallow is only used as fuel because of its risk factor, Category 3 tallow is used as a raw material for oleochemicals (fats and lipids) which are used as ingredients for the production of a wide range of household goods such as cosmetics and lubricants. It can also be used for biodiesel.

        PAP contains minerals, proteins, and fats and is species-specific to avoid any risk of intra-species recycling. PAP is an excellent alternative to soya, rapeseed, and lupin. It is transported in dedicated trailers only. These are clearly labelled “Category 3 not for Human Consumption”.
