In Finland, that has been reality for decades.
More than 50 years ago, a group of Finnish butchers and engineers decided to create a new business by processing animal by-products. They knew that there has to be a better way to manage by-products rather than just throw them onto a landfill.
At first, they started operations in an old abattoir, but that soon proved too small. So, they built a factory at Honkajoki dedicated to producing valuable high-quality commodities that act as raw material for several industries. Commodities that all have world markets. The products include:
- organic fertilizer raw materials
- animal feed raw materials
- fat used for the manufacture of fuels
- latent heat energy
The plant has been operating profitably ever since. Its main business is still rendering animal by-products into fat and meat bone meal, but a growing part of the operation today relates to the recycling Ecopark. Nothing is waste, but one company’s refuse is another company’s raw material.
Now this rendering solution, the RECOMILL plant, is available to everybody. We have developed and modularized it a step further to simplify buying and delivery of the plant, as well as match it with your business needs. We also offer all the required services to support your investment throughout its life cycle. With 50 years of experience we know how to succeed.
The most efficient way to use the RECOMILL plant is to place it close to your abbatoir. You just need steam and electricity to run the plant. And we’ll deliver the power plant as well. Great, isn’t it?
We are proud to be the first in the world to offer you one-stop shopping for the whole rendering package
