Rendering

Rendering is a process that converts waste / by-products from fish, pork, cattle, and poultry processing industries into stable, usable materials.

Materials like meat and bone meal, meat meal, poultry meal, blood meal, fish meal and animal fats and oils. These animal by-products are very useful as feed ingredients for livestock, poultry, pet food, aquaculture, and regular animal feed.

The Raw material, whether it is from pork, cow, or fish, is collected and accumulated in storage tanks.

When ready to be processed, the product is sized down through a crusher or transported directly for heating.

Traditionally this is done in a cooker which heats the product to a temperature where the bacteria are killed, and the liquids and fats are suspended from the solids.

Afterwards the product is compressed in a screw press which squeeze out the main part of water and fats. The remaining solids referred to as the press cake is then dried and milled to a flour.

The liquids are separated in decanter to get the water and oil. The oil is cleaned, and the water is used in the process again.
