Congress 2022 – Challenges of a new decade

After an enforced 3-year break, the global rendering industry met again at the EFPRA Congress in Vilamoura, Portugal. More than 400 renderers and affiliated business partners attended, including colleagues from North and South America, Australia and Asia.

The programme discussed key topics such as the feed ban, insects, pet food, organic fertilisers, biofuels, sustainability and many more. President Sjors Beerendonk reminded us that all EFPRA products contribute to a sustainable way of life from food, feed to energy. Legislators should consider how to use this potential to make Europe more sustainable and resilient in times when prices for fertiliser, energy and feed are skyrocketing.

Autumn Congress was the first chance for 18 months for members of the European rendering industry to meet and discuss important developments such as the reauthorisation of PAPs and the new Sustainability Charter. Over 100 delegates attended to listen to six insightful presentations, a further 20 people who couldn't make it in person joined to watch presentations online. A selection of photos are included below.
