Combustion of manure: Manure as fuel in a heating plant
Manure combustion divides opinions. It may be seen as an effective way to utilize the manure energy content and to reduce the amount of manure regionally. On the other hand, possible emissions from the process require attention with varying requirements in different countries.
This report with focus on manure combustion in different boiler types summarizes the most important matters regarding combustion of especially horse manure, including factors such as manure composition, possible co-fuels, technical challenges, legislation and emissions. Some results are also given for combustion of poultry manure.
The report on manure combustion was prepared as part of Workpackage 6 on Manure Energy Potentials in the project Baltic Manure.
