[Gasification] Manure Gasifier in Colorado

Greetings Li, and List members.

I would love to experiment with chicken litter, the problem of getting a
test sample of any quantity is simply my location (western Manitoba,
Canada), there are not a great amount of chickens here, do to the cost of
heating (it's currently, as I type this, minus -32 Celsius).

I found that a "seed bag" (what farmers use for transporting crop seed)
about 1 m3, is an ideal test sample size, the second problem is getting one
here, If there is a producer that is within 2 hours drive of me, that would
consider filling a bag for me, I would drive the distance to pick up a test
sample, at my expense.

I don't think there is one, BUT someone might offer....

Li I have found a way through the heating gasification maze that enables me
to test various samples quite easily however, the current month or so is
devoted to the last phase of commercialization of our heating plant that
will run on chips or cord wood, with only a lever move, to change from one
to the other. Until this project is complete, the chicken litter would sit

  Hi list members,

  Concerning manure, I was contacted by a farmer recently who wanted to
treat his chicken manure.

  He have chicken manure (only manure, no bed material) with a moiture of
13%m (drying is done directly by the heat given by chicken...it seems that
this heat will be lost if it is not used to dry chicken manure).

  This manure can not be used in a biogas plant due to its low moisture

  Actually, in France, manure gasification or incineration should meet the
requirement of MSW incineration.

  I am looking for manure thermal treaters, but it seems that though some
companies claimed on their website that their technologies could gasify or
burn manure, when I contact them, they say they are not focus on this issue.

    Thanks. Biogas is a great route for manure. Thermal gasification of
manure has always been a challenge.
