Chicken waste can be converted to energy to heat farms

Chicken waste has long been associated with use as an agricultural fertiliser due to being high in nitrates and phosphorus.

It has, however, also been linked to botulism-related deaths in farm animals and there are strict guidelines regarding the disposal of waste and bans have been implemented worldwide.

The emergence of Biomass products have changed the way we look at creating energy from sustainable fuel sources that include waste products.

Steam

Combustion technology has allowed for chicken waste to be converted to energy to heat farms.

Spirax Sarco - a global steam solution company - have utilised new technology that uses steam to create electricity that will generate power and, in turn, can convert the steam back into the hot water that you need.

In short, industrial waste will heat the building while steam will generate electricity.

Chicken farmers are set to benefit the most from this technology as it is a safe way to dispose of the litter while saving on energy costs.

Angelo Giambrone - Business Development Manager for Spirax Sarco UK said “Any industry can benefit from this. Adding steam to your biomass system is a greener way of turning a good opportunity into an unmissable one. It’s a win, win and win situation.”
