Recycling of Animal Carcasses and Processing of Slaughterhouse Waste

In the recycling of animal carcasses and processing of slaughterhouse waste, profitability and productivity are the key factors.

In the past, slaughterhouse byproducts and slaughterhouse waste arising during animal carcass recycling was often regarded as waste and disposed of accordingly. Today, attention is focused on obtaining animal fats and animal proteins. The slaughterhouse byproducts and slaughterhouse waste are processed further for this purpose, and the recyclable materials are extracted.

Recycling animal carcasses and processing slaughterhouse waste using Flottweg centrifuges delivers some decisive advantages:

  • Saving on disposal costs
  • Obtaining recyclable materials
  • Increasing the profitability of slaughterhouse operations
  • Reduction in operating costs due to an optimum process

Flottweg decanters, Tricanter® machines and disc centrifuges are used both in the recycling of animal carcasses and the processing of slaughterhouse byproducts.
