AABGU researchers see promise in poultry waste for renewable heat and power

December 5, 2017 |

In New York state, American Associates—Ben Gurion University of the Negev scientists have found a new use for turkey leftovers. It’s not about the meat — it’s about the poop. The researchers believe turkey and other poultry waste hold promise as a renewable fuel for heat and electricity.

The scientists believe treated poultry waste could replace as much as 10 percent of coal used in generating electricity, which would reduce carbon pollution—the prime driver of global warming – and provide a reliable source of energy. They describe their work in a paper recently published in the journal Applied Energy.
