Rendering in the Circular Economy


Rendering in the Circular Economy

Rendering is a process that has been carried out for centuries, but as we strive for a more circular economy, it’s clear this traditional practice has never been more important.

Rendering converts waste animal tissue into usable materials, and for hundreds of years was used primarily in soap and candle making. It’s perhaps difficult to see how this centuries-old practice relates to the modern idea of a circular economy.

But by recovering and processing animal by-products (ABPs), the traditional process of rendering is actually at the forefront of the circular economy - in which resources are kept in use for as long as possible. It means the carbon and resources it takes to rear animals are not wasted, and the nutrients and resources are kept within the feed chain.
