At FAPRO we continuously make choices with sustainability in mind to play our part in maintaining a circular economy. We avoid depleting finite resources and raw materials by reintroducing residues into the system, specifically for pet food, (aqua)feed and fertilizer.
Thanks to our innovative and tightly controlled processing techniques, we produce nutrient rich products, better for both animals and soil. This, in turn, translates into food that is better for human consumption.
Our starting point:
Raw animal base materials for biofuel, pet food, animal feed and fertilizer have a much lower ecological footprint than vegetable base alternatives. This is logical, because it involves the revalorisation of bones, which would otherwise be simply waste, and it requires less farmland than the growing of crops for the same volume end product.
For the production of your alternative fuel, pet food, feed, and fertilizer, you can be sure FAPRO raw materials:
Processing proteins from porcine products to make the raw materials for feed has an ecological footprint seven times smaller than palm kernel oil, and three times smaller than rapeseed oil and soybeans.
Processing proteins from porcine products to make raw materials for aqua feed has an ecological footprint that is nearly three times smaller than fishmeal.
Processing pork fat to make the raw material needed for alternative biofuel has an ecological footprint that is nearly seven times smaller than palm kernel oil, five times smaller than rapeseed, and up to 3 times smaller than soybeans.
Our products naturally contain high quantities of calcium and phosphorus, so no harmful monocalcium phosphate needs to be additionally added.
