Animal by Products
Animal by-products are tightly regulated to protect environmental, human and animal health.
Historically, improper use of Animal by-products has resulted in outbreaks of serious diseases such as foot and mouth disease, classical swine fever, avian influenza and the spread of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE).
Subsequently, there is struct governance for collecting, storing, transporting, handling, processing, using and disposing of Animal by-products.
To ensure you’re compliant and to preserve your duty of care, let the specialists manage this for you – Call the Mick George Group today.
What are Animal by Products?
ABPs are animal carcasses, parts of animals, or other materials which come from animals and are either meant for human consumption, or not.
If your site uses ABPs, it needs to be approved by, or registered with the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA). Some of the more common sectors exposed to Animal by-products include the following:
Animal by-product Treatment
Animal by-products can either be destroyed or can be used to make compost, biogas or other products.
Animal by-product Disposal Techniques
Animal by-product Categorisation
Broadly speaking, there are three distinct categories that the Mick George Group can assist with when disposing of animal by-products, determined by their potential risk.
Category 1: Highest Risk
• International catering waste
Category 2: High Risk
• Unhatched poultry that has died in its shell
• Carcasses of animals killed for disease control purposes
• Carcasses of dead livestock
Category 2: Lowest Risk
• Products or foods of animal origin originally meant for human consumption but withdrawn for commercial reasons, not because it’s unfit to eat
• Domestic catering waste
• Eggs, egg by-products, hatchery by-products and eggshells
• Hides and skins from slaughterhouses
• Animal hides, skins, hooves, feathers, wool, horns, and hair that had no signs of infectious disease at death
