At DAR PRO Solutions, Ingredients and Bioenergy, we take our commitment to integrity, safety and environmental stewardship seriously. Part of that commitment is helping our customers abide by all applicable local, state and federal laws regulating grease traps and recycled cooking waste. We also maintain complete service records that are available at any time for inspection.
DAR PRO service technicians are fully trained in the proper and safe procedures for servicing a grease trap and transferring used cooking oil to our collection vehicles. And our modern transportation fleet, which is among the top 50 largest privately owned fleets in the U.S., operates under strict Department of Transportation guidelines. Our drivers undergo regular safety training, and our onboard computerized logistics assure efficient scheduling and routing.
DAR PRO Solutions’ national network of processing facilities operate under Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) program guidelines, which are verified by internal and third-party audits. Through these guidelines, DAR PRO Solutions, or our third-party partners, are able to repurpose up to 70 percent of the trap material we remove into various renewable energy solutions. Our customers rest easy knowing any unusable trap material is disposed of in a safe, secure and legal manner at licensed disposal facilities.
DAR PRO Solutions believes it is critical to know what chemicals and byproducts are in the raw materials we process to produce quality feed and biofuel ingredients. Raw materials are inspected during unloading for any physical or chemical contamination, and only materials from approved suppliers are used at our processing plants. This quality control is particularly crucial for our fat, bone and meat collection.
DAR PRO keeps meticulous records to trace materials through the production process to document a transparent supply chain at all times. Samples from the byproducts and incoming shipments are routinely tested using gas chromatography for the presence of chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides and PCBs.
Our plants also implement prevention-based programs defined by the HACCP food safety model to provide for contaminant-free products that are safe to use. Our fat and protein ingredients are produced using GMP in compliance with all applicable provisions of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations. Our products are tested extensively to comply with standards set by diverse government and industry organizations.
As a DAR PRO customer, you can rest easy knowing your material will be handled safely and efficiently and in full compliance with all environmental and government codes.
