Thermal Manure-to-Energy Systems for Farms: Technical and Environmental Feasibility

Course Description:

The Farm Manure-to-Energy Initiative is regional, collaborative effort focused on demonstrating and evaluating the performance of thermal, poultry litter-fueled technologies capable of producing energy and facilitating the transport of excess nutrients out of high-density animal production areas. Results of performance evaluations, including technical and environmental feasibility will be presented, along with results from field trials where ash and biochars were compared side-by-side in row crop and vegetable production with commercial fertilizer and untreated poultry litter. Presenters will discuss challenges and opportunities associated with using thermal poultry litter-fueled technologies at the farm-scale.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.

Presenters include:
Kristen Hughes Evans, Sustainable Chesapeake
John Ignosh, Virgina Cooperative Extension and Virginia Tech
Preston Burnette, Farm Pilot Project Coordination
