About the product

This publication is a guide to the application of 'cleaner production' to the meat processing industry, with a focus on the slaughtering of cattle and pigs at abattoirs. The purpose of this guide is to raise awareness of the environmental impacts of meat processing, and to highlight approaches that industry and government can take to avoid or minimize these impacts. The publication is designed for environmental consultants as well as for people responsible for environmental issues at meat processing plants who seek information on how to improve production processes and products.
