Waste Management in Chicken Hatcheries, Slaughterhouses and Chicken Farms
Waste Problems in Slaughterhouses, Hatcheries and Poultry farms
Meat and egg production industries need to deal with the problem of wastes. These industries include:
Hatcheries of chicken
Broiler chicken farms
Slaughterhouses (Poultry or Animals)
Hatching farms are mainly faced with the problem of eggshell waste and dead chickens and rotten eggs without sperm. In this case, we are mainly dealing with soft compounds from rotten eggs and broken shells, and dead embryos in the shell which do not have hard tissue. This compound usually has high levels of protein and minerals like calcium.
Broiler farms are mainly faced with the problem of loss of chickens during the growing period, which varies between 5% to 15% in a normal situation when the farm is not struggling with an acute illness. In this group, we will encounter raw materials such as feathers, fleshy tissue, internal organs of the bird and bones. Some of these materials are light and flexible and some are hard and durable, such as bones and chicken head but also chemically rich of protein and minerals.
Both of these groups are the source of high microbial contamination and are not only harmful to the health of the personnel of these production units, but may also transmit secondary diseases around the production unit and to the employed personnel. The accumulation of insects and vermin around these lesions is another problem that adds to the problems. The best decision seems to be to collect and remove this unhygienic waste from the production facilities to the waste disposal centers. But the simplest solution is not always the best solution.
Slaughterhouses have more added wastes, mostly consist of blood, feather, skin, dead chickens during transfer from farms to slaughterhouses, bones, visceral, carcasses and so on. This industry also should remove these wastes from factory and transport it to a disposal area which has considered by authorized organization like municipality. In the case of slaughterhouses, not only poultry slaughterhouses, but also slaughterhouses of heavy livestock such as calves and pigs are no exception to this rule. During the slaughter of these animals, a lot of waste remains, which, despite being valuable, is disposed of as waste. Most of these substances contain protein tissue, blood or bone fragments that can be recycled.
It should be noted that getting rid of these wastes costs for the companies, because they have to pay the labor, to pay for the vehicle to transfer the waste and to pay for municipal disposal places. Also, everybody should be concerned that emission of mentioned wastes in the environment causes pollution and disease transmission. In a 2020 study conducted by market analysis team of Solutia in Indonesia, the current annual cost of disposing of 1,700 tons of hatchery waste was more than $US 12,000. In this calculation, the initial cost of purchasing a truck to remove the waste was not calculated. However, converting this disposable waste into dry protein powder sterilized using Solutia proposed Machine could generate more than $US 350,000 income a year for the same hatchery unit.
What is the the Best Solution for the Wastes of Slaughterhouses, Hatcheries and Poultry farms?
“Render-Cooker” machines can help “Slaughterhouses”, “hatcheries of chicken” and “broiler poultry farms” units convert these polluted wastes into useful sterilized powder compound rich of protein and elements. By using this machine, “Slaughterhouses”, “hatcheries of chicken” and “broiler poultry farms” can produce feed powder from waste instead of costly removal of it far from the production site. This environmental friendly method can also help more sanitary of production site and risk reduction of transport of wastes in roads.
Can all Render-Cookers Help Slaughterhouses, Hatcheries and Poultry farms?
Although by using a Render Cooker, all types of poultry wastes can be converted to a valuable powder with high content of protein that could be used as ingredient in feed, working with all kinds of render cookers are not so easy. The heat of some Render Cookers supply by steam boilers which causes loss of energy during transfer to render cookers. Steam boilers usually have high depreciation and maintenance costs which makes it not a suitable choice for industries if they have better selection. There are some Render Cookers for conversion of wastes to useful protein powder which use oil as the heating fluid. This solution reduces the energy consumption by render cooker, and also needs less depreciation and maintenance costs. All parts of the process (heat generation and rendering parts) are integrated in one package. So, the need for piping from steam boiler to rendering machine, sealing of pipes, leaks in fittings and other problems are solved easily.
3 important items to consider for selection of the suitable Render-Cooker for Hatchery, Poultry Farm or Slaughterhouse
Selection of best render cooker for broiler poultry farms, hatcheries and slaughterhouses to solve waste problem depends on lots of parameters, but among them three parameters are most important.
First of all, it depends on the amounts of wastes produce daily or weekly. Usually daily or weekly wastes production varies between 500 kg to 4000 kg in these plants. Solutia, can offer machines with 750 liters, 1500 liters, 2000 liters and 4000 liters capacities for each batch of wastes which can cover all wastes production capacities daily or weekly.
Second parameter is the fuel of burner which the factory uses. Usually furnaces which use natural gas have higher efficiency and less air pollution but if the factory uses diesel fuel, the device should be able to adapt with this fuel. Hopefully render cookers of Solutia can be adapted by natural gas, diesel and even heating by electric elements. Fuel consumption, same as cooking period depends on moisture content of input material. Generally for producing 1 kg of protein powder, there is a need to at least 0.1 liter of diesel and 0.1 kw of electric power. It depends on the capacity of machine. Surely when the device is bigger, the efficiency is higher. in this case, Solutia can share more information to whom may be interested to select best machine.
Third parameter is the easy installation and operation. Oil heating render cookers of Solutia have advantage of easy installation and operation because of no need to piping, insulation, unnecessary fittings and even no need to special foundation (no need to neither specific reinforced concert foundation nor bolts to fix the machine. Just a flat base would be enough for installation and operation of the machine.
How buy Render-Cooker to solve waste problem?
Although there are lots of solutions to remove waste from poultry farms, slaughterhouses and hatcheries, the best solution is to use a render cooker. Oil-based render cookers with suitable capacity and capability to be adapted with the current fuel use in the plant would be the best choice. Solutia has installed lots of these machines in different countries like Indonesia, Colombia, Iraq, Oman, Iran, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and other countries. Most of them are working for more than 10 years just with a routine maintenance program and all spare parts supply to clients immediately after orders.
