Animal by-products (ABP’s) are entire animal bodies, parts of animals, products of animal origin or other products obtained from animals that are not fit or intended for human consumption. CAT1 is a category of ABP’s which is deemed to carry the highest risk as it can include parts of an animal which can carry disease.
It is therefore extremely important that these products are dealt with in accordance with strict regulation and this is where our experience and knowledge enables us to ensure that we process these products without risk to people, animals or the environment.
These materials must be disposed of by incineration or processing (pressure rendering) followed by incineration. We are fully approved by DEFRA (animal health) and the Local Authority (environmental control) to carry out these disposals.
