Dead animals are turned into fuel and combustible material

20 August 2018

Dead animals are placed in the container at the municipal carcass collection centre - for example in Baden. The carcasses from the collection centre end up at GZM Extraktionswerk AG in Lyss. This subsidiary of Centravo processes all animal carcasses or slaughterhouse waste for the western part of Switzerland that is not suitable for further use as animal feed.
"We recycle everything. We only get super ecological products," says GZM spokesman Georg Herriger. So a dead calf from Baden ends up as water in the River Aare, as biodiesel in a tank or as fuel at Jura Cement.
