The end result of the rendering process for solids produces protein meal which can either go for pet food and renewable energy. The fats are extracted during the rendering process, which results in tallow that either gets recycled into soap and organic chemicals, or again a carbon-neutral renewable energy source. Any extracted water is processed in our effluent treatment plant, which is then harvested and recycled for crop irrigation on local agricultural land.
