Darling International Celebrates 5th Anniversary of Listing On Thursday, December 6, executives and guests of Darling International Inc.(NYSE: DAR), will visit the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to mark the company's 5th anniversary of listing. The company's common stock began trading on the NYSE on October 24, 2007.
In honor of the occasion, Chairman and CEO, Randall Stuewe will ring the NYSE Closing Bell. About Darling International Inc: Darling International Inc. is America's oldest, largest and most innovative recycling solutions company serving the nation's food industry. The company collects and recycles animal by-products, bakery residuals and used cooking oil from poultry and meat processors, commercial bakeries, grocery stores, butcher shops, and food service establishments and provides grease trap cleaning services to many of the same establishments. The company then transforms these waste streams into useable feed ingredients such as tallow, feed-grade fats, meat and bone meal, poultry meal, and bakery by-products. For over 130 years, Darling's legacy as a recycling pioneer continues to drive its focus on innovation and sustainability, creating new markets for its products, such as its 50/50 joint venture partnership with Valero Energy to build a renewable diesel plant. The new facility, Diamond Green Diesel, located on a site adjacent to Valero's St. Charles refinery near Norco, Louisiana, will convert used cooking oil and animal fats primarily supplied by Darling, along with other available fats, into renewable diesel. Designed to produce approximately 9,300 barrels of renewable diesel per day, or 137 million gallons per year, the plant is slated for completion in early 2013.
