Darling International Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Randall Stuewe said, "We are pleased to add Terra Renewal Services, Inc.  and its employees to our Company.  The grease collection business is highly complementary to our existing footprint while the industrial residuals business is a new line of business.   We are truly excited about the opportunity the industrial residuals business brings us.   Not only will we be able to provide additional services to our rendering raw material suppliers, but we have secured a supply chain that will be essential in building out our new waste stream extraction business."

Darling International Inc. is the largest and only publicly traded provider of rendering and bakery residuals recycling solutions to the nation's food industry. The Company recycles beef, poultry and pork by-product streams into useable ingredients such as tallow, feed-grade fats, meat and bone meal, poultry meal and hides.  The Company also recovers and converts used cooking oil and commercial bakery residuals into valuable feed and fuel ingredients.  These products are primarily sold to agricultural, pet food, leather, oleo-chemical and biodiesel manufacturers around the world.  In addition, the Company provides grease trap collection services and sells used cooking oil collection equipment to restaurants.
