A chicken farmer transforming the world of Biochar by recycling his chicken manure and producing energy in the process.
I produce more than 6oo tons of waste byproduct annually.
The manure is fed into a gasifier where it is heated to high temperatures using extremely low amounts of oxygen.
A million of the 5 million BTU’s generated are used to heat one of the coops or barns.
The heating process produces as much as 9,000 pounds of biochar per day, a charcoal-like substance with environmental benefits.
The carbon contained in the biochar stays in the soil up to 100 times longer than unprocessed materials.
