Abstract
Agricultural activities produce large quantities of animal wastes in the form of manures. Currently, the accumulation of manures from animal husbandry operations is a serious threat to water supplies. The technology for conversion of poultry manure into fuel gases by using heat can be integrated with internal combustion (IC) engines, microturnines, or fuel cells and have widespread agricultural use for animal manure removal, resource recovery, and power generation. Export opportunities will exist for underdeveloped countries with limited central power production capabilities. The technology would also have potential applications to related solid waste resource recovery problems in remote areas such as oil production platforms, submarines, ships, military operations, etc.
