New study says Turkey could produce one-third of power demand from biomass

July 14, 2020 |

The country’s 17 million head of cattle could produce 120 million metric tons of manure which could be feedstock for biogas and later electricity, the recently released Biomass Energy Potential Assessment 2020 shows, but chicken waste is also a major untapped resource. The study also looks at opportunities for solid biomass and its potential use for power production.
