Alfa Laval is a trusted and proven equipment manufacturer and service partner to the Australian rendering industry. Rendering is a local growth industry that pursues zero waste by turning animal by-products into fractionated food, feed and technical grade products. These added-value products can include oils, tallows, greaves and meals suitable both for animal feed and human consumption, or as ingredients for use in downstream edible and inedible processes including biofuels.

Achieving higher yield and profitability

Inedible animal by-products have significant commercial value, especially in the context of rising commodity prices for tallow, sustainable fuels / biodiesel and pet food production.

Alfa Laval’s extensive long-term experience and knowledge of rendering processes make us a strong supplier of components such as decanters and centrifuges / high speed separators as well as complete wet rendering lines and evaporation systems. These processing lines and all their components can be adapted for either edible or inedible use, with full CIP capabilities.

The extensive use of “washing” technology using high performance Alfa Laval decanter centrifuges paves the way for the production of fish, meat and bone meal with an exceptionally low fat content. In addition, the washing process increases the protein content in the meal as well as recovering valuable oil.

Alfa Laval has been operating in Australia for more than 95 years with an unrivalled service presence covering all States and Territories.
