Blood Products are any product derived from human blood, including but not limited to blood plasma, platelets, red or white corpuscles, and derived licensed products such as interferon.

In the context of the environment, 'blood products' refer to animal blood that is processed and used for various purposes, such as fertilizers, animal feed, and industrial products. Blood products are a byproduct of the meat industry, and their disposal can have environmental impacts.

Here are some examples of the uses of blood products in the environment:

  • Fertilizer: Dried and powdered blood can be used as a source of nitrogen in fertilizers. It is high in protein and other nutrients that are beneficial to plants.

  • Animal feed: Blood meal, which is made from dried and ground blood, can be used as a protein source in animal feed. It is commonly used in poultry and swine diets.

  • Industrial products: Blood can be processed to extract various proteins and other components that are used in the production of industrial products. For example, blood albumin is used in the manufacture of photographic film, while blood fibrin is used in the production of adhesives.

While blood products can have beneficial uses, their disposal can also pose environmental challenges. Blood is high in nutrients and can contribute to water pollution if not properly managed. In addition, the processing of blood products can generate wastewater and other waste streams that must be properly treated and disposed of to prevent environmental harm.
