Chicken manure to power homes
7 Oct 2008, ANI
The world’s largest biomass power plant running exclusively on chicken manure has opened in the Netherlands, which will deliver renewable electricity
to 90,000 households.
According to a report in ENN, the power plant has a capacity of 36.5 megawatts, and will generate more than 270 million KWH of electricity per year.
The biomass power plant is more than merely “carbon neutral”. The biomass power plant will utilize 440,000 tons of chicken manure, roughly one third of the total amount produced each year in the Netherlands.
