Creating Value through Resource Transformation in the Red Meat Processing Industry

The Problem

A red meat processing facility faced challenges in managing by-products, including wastewater and organic solids from the content of cattle during processing. They sought a solution to address these issues and unlock hidden potential within their operations.

Our Solution

Tessele Consultants provided an extensive circular economy strategy, including water recycling, energy generation from organic solid by-products and production of valuable fertilisers. Through calculated economic models and potential external investments, we enabled the facility to effectively manage their underutilised by-products. Our solutions also create other profit centres too.
