Waste Management in Agriculture – Hygienic Incineration of Biological Waste

Businesses requiring carcass disposal need animal incinerators for various applications. The incinerators ensure bio-security for pig, poultry, and sheep farms as well as test centers, veterinary practices, hunt kennels, zoos, rendering plants, and pet cremation businesses.

The ease of operation and robust design of the animal incinerators make them durable without any reduction in efficiency levels. These incinerators are also a financially viable option for companies dealing with animal waste management as part of their usual business.

Animal Waste

These agricultural incinerators are well-suited for efficient disposal of any type of animal waste, ranging from full carcasses down to animal by-products, as well as soiled livestock bedding and contaminated feed.

If small scale animal carcass incineration is performed to high standards, it becomes one of the best methods for disposal. If burning is carried out under 50 kg per hour, the incineration process is exempt from emissions regulations under the Waste Incineration Directive according to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), although the process will still be covered under an amendment to the Animal Waste Directive.

On-site incineration avoids the need for long-time storage of animal waste and eliminates the waiting period for waste collection and processing at another location. It also prevents the movement of potentially contaminated animal remains, thereby limiting the spread of disease.


On-site animal incineration needs to be completed with no undue delay so as to reduce odor. Hygienic incineration of animal carcasses can also be ensured by adhering to good housekeeping practices. Complete destruction of the waste material over the incineration cycle is facilitated by following correct loading procedures and employing efficient combustion technology, thus resulting in minimal environmental impact and reduced emissions.

Animal incinerators developed by Inciner8 satisfy the UK and EU Animal By-Products Regulations, and are approved by DEFRA. Thus, businesses can feel confident that the animal waste management procedures followed by them will minimize risk, will contribute to their bio-security measures and will be controllable and efficient. According to the existing legislation, no license is needed if burning is less than 50 kg per hour.
