Environment protection

Even the smallest quantity of improperly discarded or incorrectly managed animal by-products can be dangerous for human and animal health, but it can also do great harm to the environment. Therefore it is necessary to improve and upgrade the system of collecting animal by-products. By building a new rendering plant for processing Category 1 and 2 animal by-products, transforming the old factory building into a rendering plant for processing solely Category 3 by-products, and also by enlarging, separating and modernizing its vehicle fleet, Agroproteinka provided all conditions necessary for proper separate collection, transport and rendering of animal by-products in 2006. All this was done according to the EU accession negotiations and the National Programme for upgrading the facilities dealing with food and animal by-products.
