Information @ a Glance

  • Tallow is a rendered fat from beef or sheep , after then the impurities are removed. Tallow is carefully regulated as an animal by-product. Tallow is classified as edible, use in soap, candles, or as animal feed depending on its purity level.
  • Tallow is also rendered from horses, which is a highly monounsaturated fatty acid, with lesser amount of saturated polyunsaturated fatty acid.
  • Wet rendering is one of the process that produces the purest form of tallow. Fat is heated in water between 130 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. During the process, gravity separates the impurities from the fat, which settle down into the water.
  • Nutritional fact about Tallow is that one cup of mutton tallow provides 1849 calories.
  • Mutton tallow can also be used in skin ointments and natural skin care remedies. It penetrates layers of dead skin, softening the hard areas on the face.
  • These are the manufacturing process of Tallow: Get some fat first. Cut it as small as possible. Place it in a pot. Keep it on burner over the lowest heat possible and cover it up. Strain the fat.
  • Tallow has an existing market in conventional oleo chemicals as a unique feedstock with properties that are hard to reproduce from plant oils. This is one of the best fats for high heat cooking as because it remains stable even with a high smoke point and we can avoid generating free radicals.
  • Beef tallow is protective against breast tumors. Using beef tallow will help make bones strong as it has a lot of vitamin D in it.
  • We can find its application in soap making, Candle making and Biodiesel. The present demand for the animal tallow is estimated at 21,645 tonnes per annum. The demand of which is expected to reach 36,041 tonnes by the year 2020.
  • The production capacity of the tallow plant is 150 tonnes per year which is based on 300 working days per year and single shift of (8 hrs) per day. By increasing the number of working hours per day, we can increase the capacity.
  • The total cost of machinery and equipment is estimated at Birr 5.6 million, out of which Birr 4.48 million is foreign currency.
  • The total cost of land, building and civil works will come around  Birr 2.57 million. The total annual labour cost is Birr 168,750. The cost of training is estimated at Birr 25,000.
  • The total investment cost of the tallow project including working capital is estimated at Birr 9.5 million, of which 17 % will be required in foreign currency.
  • The annual production cost at full operation capacity is estimated at Birr 2.54 million. The material and utility cost accounts for 43.41 per cent, while repair and maintenance will be around 3.94% of the production cost.
  • A recent analysis of the Australian feedstock market for ARF concluded that ‘a long-term tallow feedstock price of $481 per tonne is on a reasonable basis which is to conduct long-term financial projections’.
  • The full capital cost of a feedstock capacity of 70,000 tonnes per year is likely to cost $20-30 million.
  • About 120,000 tonnes of tallow are exported from New Zealand annually and could be used as feedstock.
  • The unit capital cost of smaller plants, with capacities less than 10,000 tonnes per year, and the capability to be associated with sources of tallow or oil production, will be 2 to 4 times higher.
