At EggSolutions, sustainability and working to reduce our carbon footprint is in our DNA.
Net Zero Waste Program
The EggSolutions / Global Egg Corporation Net Zero Waste Program governs the way we process our shell eggs. The program reduces our footprint on the environment by diverting production waste from landfills and drains.
Once the eggs are broken, the shells are collected and sent to our drying facility in Elmira.
The dried egg shells are then reintroduced into the market as a high calcium ingredient for chicken feed producers.
The inedible by-products that occur when egg yolks are separated from egg whites (albumen), is also captured and shipped to one of our manufacturing partners, Perth County Ingredients. There, they are dried and reintroduced into the pet food market as a food ingredient.
This reduces the burden on municipal waste water treatment centers. It also allows us to save on energy consumption and emissions by reducing the usage of our DAF (Dissolved Air Floatation) unit.
