Poultry mortality disposal done correctly
South Africa has a booming poultry industry, it is in fact one of the biggest agricultural sectors in the country. With it being the biggest sector, it also generates some of the largest waste volumes. Poultry waste management needs to follow careful disposal methods, in order to prevent pollution, unwanted rodents, and disease.
Here are some reasons why composting, when done correctly, is the ideal solution for chicken mortalities.
Cost-effective: animal carcasses require rendering, processing, transportation, and burial if it is not composted. Poultry farmers will also need to comply with stringent waste regulations if they send their waste to landfill. All these activities have high-cost implications. Having an on-site, well-managed composting unit can eliminate most of these costs.
Environmentally friendly: animal waste rendering, burial, and incineration pose a direct impact on groundwater resources and air quality. Composting animal waste in a contained system, under controlled conditions, will convert this waste into rich compost and prevent excess waste by-products that have the potential to pollute the surrounding environment.
Biosecure disposal: When Newcastle disease first broke out in Australia, BiobiN became the solution to handle chicken carcasses, and eliminate harmful pathogens through the contain composting process. Following Australia, BiobiN has been adopted by many other countries around the world as the solution to deal with agricultural animal waste.
