Poultry Manure to Produce Electricity02 August 2012
TURKEY - A 20 million Turkish Liras biogas facility to be established in Band?rma, one of the leading poultry centers in the northwestern province of Bal?kesir, will produce energy out of the manure of around 2.5 million chickens.
According to Hurriyet Daily News, Recep Y?lmaz, a board member at the investor company, said they would be cooperating with a Germany company, without disclosing a name.
“Companies allied to the Band?rma Egg Producers Association own around 2.5 million chickens. The association will provide us with manure,” he said.
The daily poultry manure production in the region is around 170 tons. The facility will also use some 45 tons of livestock manure, 14 tons of corn silage and 82 tons of water, Y?lmaz said. The daily production on 20,640 meter squares of biogas will generate 17 million KwH of electricity annually, he added.
