Odour emissions from pet food processing

The processing of animal by-products and meat to make pet food has a high potential for generating odours.

Pet food facilities carry out a number of high-risk activities for odour emissions
Pet food facilities carry out a number of high-risk activities for odour emissions

Certain activities are particularly high-risk:

  • receiving raw materials
  • grinding
  • blending
  • cooking
  • canning or pouching.

Some pet food facilities also carry out on-site rendering of animal wastes – another key area of risk.

If you’re serious about controlling odour from a pet food production facility, you’ll need a combination of robust odour and process management procedures (from housekeeping to material storage). Odournet can help you evaluate the procedures you already have in place and optimise them as necessary.  We can also offer support in applying both odour collection and odour treatment systems to high-risk elements of the process (for example, at a canning plant).
