Proposal for Energy Independent Phosphorus Recovery System from Livestock Manure by Supercritical Water Gasification

T. Yanagida & Y. Matsumura
Livestock manure conversion technology to replace composting is currently needed in Japan. Supercritical water gasification (SCWG) is a potential new technology in the field of livestock manure management. SCWG can quickly and efficiently convert organic materials and phosphorus in the livestock manure into fuel gases and phosphate compound, respectively. In this paper, we propose an SCWG system that is energetically independent and in which phosphate compound is produced from livestock manure. The system is evaluated...
