A new EFPRA White Paper provides more details on the carbon footprint of using rendered fat and PAP in feed. The publication titled ‘Life Cycle Assessment of Rendered Products (GFLI Methodology)‘ is based on research from Blonk Consultants.
It assesses the carbon footprint of a range of rendered by-products for use in animal feed compared to other common ingredients such as palm oil and soybean meal. The research is based on the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology, as described in international standards ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 and is available in the the Global Feed LCA Institute (GFLI), an independent feed industry initiative.
