International Rendering Symposium

Fri. February 15| 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM |

The U.S. rendering industry collects and safely processes more than 50 billion pounds of animal byproducts each year. Rendering converts these materials into fats and proteins used in animal feed. The rendering industry provides services for the safe collection of these materials and uses heat to dehydrate and separate the fat and solid materials. The rendering industry is a green, sustainable, and vital part of the agricultural chain. Sponsored by National Renderers Association and USPOULTRY, this symposium will focus on the opportunities and challenges to the industry today.
