Ingenieria Avícola Shows How to Add Value to Egg Waste at IPPE

13 January 2014

SPAIN - Spanish company, Ingeniería Avícola, will introduce a new process developed by its R&D department at IPPE in Atlanta, US in January 2014.

This process adds value to by-products such as eggs not intended for human consumption or egg shell.

Through this new process, the following products are obtained:

  • Dehydrated egg - Egg unfit for human consumption becomes easily handled dehydrated egg available for purposes such as as a raw material for farm animal feed and pet food.
  • Dry shell - Egg shell is processed obtaining dry shell, which is easy to manage and can be used as a raw material for farm animal feed and pet food as well as a fertiliser and soil improver.
  • Dry shell with no organic matter - Through an additional process, the dry shell can be treated and the organic matter extracted from the dry shell. This product can be used in derived products such as cosmetics, as an additive in industrial processes where high purity of calcium carbonate without organic matter is required. Carbon composition: total carbon: 5.84 per cent; organic carbon <0.01 per cent.
