Sustainable processing of animal by-products to new, high quality raw materials


For nearly 50 years, Cominbel has been your reliable partner for the collection and processing of animal by-products.

We process these valuable and essential waste streams from the meat industry to new and high quality raw materials for the production of animal feed, pet food, oleo chemistry, biodiesel and (organic), fertilisers. We provide a professional, fast, safe and sustainable service tailored to your needs. Together with you, we contribute to a better future.

What we do


At Cominbel you can count on a circular and sustainable production process from A to Z. All animal by-products collected are converted to new qualitative raw materials, with the smallest possible ecological footprint.

We process bones and fatty animal by-products from slaughterhouses, cutting plants and butchers and transform them into high-quality animal fats and proteins for animal feed, petfood, oleo chemistry, bio-diesel and fertiliser industry.

We continuously commit ourselves to improve and innovate our production and services. We keep samples of each (delivered) product and analyse them in our own lab. Each customer receives with each delivery a corresponding analysis report.
