Project Title: Protein From Waste and Local Crops

Grant Amount:USD$50,000

Implementer: The Grenada Project



Objective: Recycle certain waste streams including fish and other offals, brewer’s spent grain, market waste, restaurant and hotel food waste and crop waste to manufacture a protein product that will lower the cost of feeding poultry and significantly improve the livelihoods of Grenada’s farmers while avoiding putting noxious organic wastes in the local landfill and generating odor problems.

Expected Results:

  • The equipment and materials necessary to operate the Protein from Waste plant will be fabricated, shipped, assembled and tested during the project.
  • 26,000 lbs of waste will be converted into a Protein Supplement
  • 850 gallons of waste motor oil will be recycled
  • Preliminary production of the Protein Supplement where the various feedstock to be used in production will be run through the whole line.
