Effects of Pressure on the Gasification of Poultry Litter

C. Font-Palma & A.D. Martin
The poultry industry is large in the EU which generates litter as waste. Improper application and/or overuse of poultry litter as fertiliser can cause the spread of pathogens and ground water pollution. Therefore, gasification is proposed as a potential solution for disposal and energy generation. Conventional gasification systems are large scale with an atmospheric gasifier that requires cooling of the product gas. This work, however, employs a small on-site pressurised gasifier to maintain all stages...
