Poultry farms for meat or egg production is considered to be a huge business. However, waste including manure can give biogas that can produce electricity. In Pakistan load shedding problem remains throughout the year, therefore biomass being the cheap and efficient fuel for power generation can overcome this problem. This research has been conducted in Abbottabad district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Data has been collected from poultry farms for power generation as number of chickens, amount of…
