We take product safety and efficacy very seriously, in a world where the misuse of fertilisers and Animal By-Product can have far-reaching consequences. KalFos has been fully assessed by the Environment Agency’s End of Waste panel, and was awarded End of Waste status in 2014. This assessment included aspects of it’s safe use as a fertilising agent and soil improver, as well as placing tight controls on the feedstocks we can use to produce it and the method of production we have to adhere to. Our feedstocks come from our clients, who are farmers, abattoirs and food processors, and KalFos is then ultimately used to grow crops and grass which feed animals, completing a closed-loop production system.
KalFos is produced by rendering and incinerating Animal By-Products, under an approval from DEFRA and a permit from the Environment Agency. The system used ensures no plant, animal or human pathogens are carried over from the feedstock to the end product, all are fully treated and no protein matter is left in the end KalFos product. Following the strict rules and regulations that govern the production process means KalFos can be utilised as a fertiliser without requiring Environment Agency land spreading permits and deployments, or observing grazing/harvesting intervals found in Animal By-Product Regulations.
As KalFos has been assessed by the EA and DEFRA and is no longer a waste or an Animal By-Product, it can be utilised on land covered by various farm assurance schemes, including The Red Tractor Scheme.
