YELLOW (FRYER) GREASE
The National Renderers Association
The NRA is an American Trade Association whose business
is to promote the interests of its members. Members of this association
are all in the business of rendering (i.e., transforming waste from
the meat industry into useable products for animal feeds and technical
use). Renderers are even known as the original recyclers. On average,
slaughterhouses, packing plants, supermarkets, butcher shops, and
restaurants collectively generate at least 40,000 metric tons of animal
byproduct each week. Without the rendering industry, byproducts from
meat and poultry processing would fill up landfills very quickly and
the decomposing waste would contaminate our soil and water with disease-causing
microorganisms and vermin. For more information on related subjects
