Title: Energy from poultry waste
To respond to the problem of waste disposal at a poultry farm, in the project SRE (Sustainable Rural Energy) LGED installed biogas and organic fertilizer production systems in the Faridpur District of Bangladesh. Poultry waste was the input material for the biogas converter. This pilot project demonstrated that poultry waste can serve as a source of renewable energy, solved the dilemma of disposal of the poultry waste, and created more hygienic conditions for the workers. The poultry owners were very enthusiastic and additional private enterprises resulted. The project demonstrated effective waste managements and generated innovative activities for earning income.
