An introduction into the world of farming abbreviations

Farming has become increasingly challenging over the past number of years, not only have raw materials seen huge increases in cost but protecting livestock from outbreaks and a range of diseases can also have a massive financial burden on farmers. For many, having onsite incineration is essential for confidence, biosecurity and to obtain some certifications (such as Red Tractor).

Here at Inciner8, we have a long history of supporting farms all across the world. We have worked directly with farms, less than 50 miles away from our Merseyside headquarters, to camel and cattle farms located deep in the heart of central Africa.

What exactly is DEFRA?

Many of our agricultural machines are DEFRA type approved, making them suitable for securing Red Tractor Assurance and similar worldwide accreditations. These are designed to improve the quality of life for livestock animals, produce better meats for consumers and allow farmers to receive better value for their end products. Our DEFRA type approved models are designed to burn a maximum of 50kg per hour and have a gas retention time of 2 seconds. Once the incineration process is complete, there will be a small amount of ash left within the chamber that will need to be removed. This ash can be disposed of in several ways – including mixing it with manure and spreading it across agricultural land*.

Having a well-implemented incineration plan is fundamental to achieving approved status of various accreditations. Our wide range of incinerators allows farmers with all types of livestock to deal with their waste. Fallen stock, stillborn, animal by-products and more can all easily be dealt with by our award-winning waste solutions. Our incinerators can maintain site biosecurity by handling fallen stock almost instantly. Removing hazardous waste reduces the chances of outbreaks and diseases on-site as well as reducing risk of vermin and overall waste collection costs.

Why on-site incineration is now a must for farms

Waste collection prices have skyrocketed over recent years for numerous reasons. Incinerating on-site not only removes these costs but limits the chances of bringing additional diseases onto the farm as collection trucks will often go from site to site collecting hazardous waste. Additionally some of our larger systems can provide waste to energy as a by product and provide hot air or water as an additional benefit. This can be used to heat livestock shelters or provide hot water to where it is needed.

What on-site incineration can be used for:

  • Animal By-Products
  • Fallen Livestock
  • Animal Bedding
  • Wood

Plus much more*

It is easy to see why on-site incineration is becoming increasingly popular for farms all over the world. With it not being suitable to bury or openly burn fallen stock, incineration is seen as the go to option for waste removal. If you feel that your site would benefit from one of our systems or you would just like to discuss your options, then please get in touch with our advisors on 0044 1704 884020 or email our team via our contact us page.

*Any waste that isn’t organic or is not considered part of the animal process will need additional pollution control in parts for legal incineration.
