RENDERING IS RECYCLING RENDERING IS AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WAY TO RECYCLE MATERIAL THAT WOULD BE WASTED WHAT MATERIALS ARE RENDERED? WHAT ARE THE PRODUCTS OF RENDERING? Renderers collect: 56BILLION POUNDS of raw materials every year in the U.S. and Canada Renderers recycle these materials into: 10BILLION POUNDS Rendered products are ingredients in: Pet & livestock feed Plus Other products like soaps, lubricants, detergents, and more. RENDERING IS Green! Biofuel Fertilizer of fat and oil products 9BILLION POUNDS of protein products annually PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN & Dog Food Packing Plants 147.2 MILLION Farms Grocery Stores generate Super Foods 1.92 BILLION POUNDS of scraps, fat, bone, expired meat & used cooking oil annually head of cattle, calves, hogs & sheep are slaughtered annually in the US 4.5 % Some animals die on the farm from injury, old age, or other issues. Renderers prevent this from becoming a public health hazard by eliminating pathogens in the rendering process. Fallen animals only represent about 4.5% of rendered product of rendered product 4.4 BILLION POUNDS RENDERING IS SAFE & ESSENTIAL t 1SPUFDUTUIFFOWJSPONFOU t 1SPUFDUTIVNBOIFBMUI t 1SPUFDUTBOJNBMIFBMUI t 4VTUBJOBCMFBOEDPOUSJCVUFTUP sustainability of animal agriculture t &TTFOUJBMMJOLJOGPPEDIBJO Rendering is: Rendering is recycling!

Rendering these animal tissues has the same effect on greenhouse gas emissions as removing A single decomposing dairy cow releases 1.2 METRIC TONS of carbon dioxide. Rendering avoids this! 1.2 metric tons If all renderable product was sent to the landfill, all available space would be used in 4 YEARS 10 BILLION chickens and turkeys are processed each year in the US APPROXIMATELY 50% of the animal is considered inedible by Americans and goes to renderers including: bones, fat, blood, feathers & some internal organs Renderers collect of used cooking oil per year in the U.S. and Canada National Renderers Association t 500 Montgomery St, Suite 310, Alexandria, VA 22314 t (703) 683-0155 t www.nationalrenderers.org t info@nationalrenderers.com
