Millions of tons of animal by-products are produced in the U.S. each year in the agricultural and animal industries. The rendering process allows for the recycling of animal harvesting wastes that would otherwise be disposed of in landfills.
WHAT IS RENDERING?
Rendering transforms waste by-products from the animal industry into stable, valuable and safe-to-use materials such as bone meal, blood meal and feather meal, which can be used as organic fertilizer for plants or as a nutritional supplement for animals.
Businesses such as JBS, Cargill, and Tyson use Uzelac Industries rotary dryers in the rendering process to remove moisture from the raw material and help produce these end products. Carrying on the tradition of the Duske Dryer, Uzelac Industries is the leading provider of rotary dryers to the rendering industry in the U.S.
For rendering Uzelac has dried:
• Cattle blood
• Pork blood
• Cattle meat and bone meal
• Fish meal
• Feather meal
• Egg shell
• Paunch manure
