[Digestion] Digestion of Chicken Dung

Our Danish technical guys are very familiar with it. Some comments:

1. It is 6% nitrogen, so you have to have abundant low-nitrogen material as
substrates to balance the nitrogen-to-carbon ratio.

2. The schedules for chicken producers cleaning out their buildings vary and
the seasonality can be a real problem. This stuff is difficult to store at a
biogas plant and feed in over time on a more steady schedule needed for
biogas.

3.  Local producers often exchange bedding for chicken manure, so the
producers get something for it from the farmers in exchange for using it as
fertilizer. If this occurs, it is tough to make the economics work, since
the chicken guys are getting generally paid in kind by farmers.

Dear William,
1 kg dry chicken dung produced in our trials about 300 litres biogas.
