ABP Section

The aim of the Animal By Products Section is to regulate and control compliance with Council Regulation EC 1069/09 and implementing regulation EC 142/2011.

During 2008 several visits were carried out in the thermal facility of Malta where also ABP are disposed; together with personnel from the thermal facility a number of SOP were discussed and issued, in particular for the acceptance of carcasses from the Civil Abattoir and from farmers.

Actually there are four approved establishments handling ABP two of which are suspended.

A total of 4734.27 tons of ABP have been incinerated at the TTF in 2016​.
