ABRA (Brazilian Association of Animal Recycling) was in Argentina participating in the IV National Congress of the Cámara de Subproductos Ganaderos of the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange (BCBA), in Mar del Plata. The centennial entity is a reference for animal rendering in Argentina.

The Congress addressed all the factors that influence the manufacture of animal rendering products – from the quality of tallow and meal in animal nutrition, passing through Argentine livestock production, reaching relevant aspects of the market and its perspectives for the sector. 178 decision makers, specialists and professionals dedicated to rendering and industries that make use of their final product worldwide participated.

ABRA spoke at the Congress

ABRA’s Technical Coordinator and President of the World Renderers Organization (WRO), Lucas Cypriano, was one of the specialists from several countries who integrated the event’s programming. In addition to lecturing on innovation in the rendering industries, Cypriano also presented a compilation of the most recent WRO actions with other entities, such as FAO/LEAP, a program of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.

The presentation also brought the advances made with the World Organization for Animal Health (OMSA, former OIE) in relation to the revision of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code, in particular, the chapters that establish the international recommendations for combating Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy ( EEB).

Cypriano also spoke about the WRO’s involvement with the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF), in addition to global efforts on guidelines involving the fight against avian influenza and foot-and-mouth disease, in order to ensure the sanitary quality of goods in the animal rendering sector.
