To verify the possibility of applicability of the proposed Supercritical Water Gacification (SCWG) process, where fine activated carbon catalyst is suspended in the feedstock to the swine manure and the cattle manure, and compare the result with layer poultry manure, SCWG has been conducted for these manures, using a pilot scale continuous supercritical water gasification plant (treating scale: 1 t-wet/d). In the gasification of layer poultry manure, complete gasification was achieved. On the other hand,...
