Meat, feather rendering plant coming to Italy

Facility expected to be built in second quarter of 2013

Danish supplier of drying and evaporation equipment Haarslev Industries‘ role in converting animal byproducts into proteins and fats has landed the company the order for a new green field rendering plant in Italy. The order has been placed by the Amadori Group, and will be built near the company’s headquarter in Cesena, Italy.

The plant will consist of two continuous rendering lines — one for meat by-products and the other for processing feathers. The two lines will be built using the latest technology in process control and energy conservation, according to the company. Plant installation and start-up will take place during the second quarter of 2013.

“The order is very important for Haarslev Industries, as it confirms the company’s position as the most important rendering equipment supplier to the Italian market,” said Haarslev sales director Henning Haugaard. “The relationship between Haarslev Industries and Amadori is new, but one that both companies will benefit from long term.”
