The 2017 International Rendering Symposium will showcase the sustainability of the U.S. and Canadian rendering industry. Held during the 2017 International Production & Processing Expo in Atlanta, Ga., notable speakers will discuss how rendering leftover products from the meat and poultry industries contribute to the life cycle analysis of animal agriculture and environmentally-friendly biofuel.

The two-day program, sponsored by the National Renderers Association and the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), costs $200 to attend. The program and will be held from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017, and from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 3, 2017.

The U.S. and Canadian rendering industry collects and safely processes more than 56 billion pounds of animal byproducts each year, converting these materials into fat and protein ingredients primarily used in animal feed, pet food and fuels. The rendering industry provides services for the safe collection of these materials and uses heat to dehydrate and separate the fat and solid materials before recycling them into new high-value ingredients. IPPE, the world's largest annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show, will be held Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2017.

IPPE is a collaboration of three trade shows—International Feed Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Meat Expo—representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by the USPOULTRY, the American Feed Industry Association and the North American Meat Institute.
