Role of Thermochemical Conversion in Livestock Waste-to-Energy Treatments : Obstacles and Opportunities

  title={Role of Thermochemical Conversion in Livestock Waste-to-Energy Treatments : Obstacles and Opportunities},
  author={Keri B. Cantrell and Kyoung S. Ro and Devinder Mahajan and Mouzhgun Anjom and Patrick G. Hunt},
Integrating thermochemical conversion (TCC) technologies with current animal waste treatment practices can treat and reduce quantities of manure from consolidated animal feeding operations. Additionally, TCC technologies can produce value-added, renewable energy products. These products can meet heating and power needs or be catalytically converted into liquid fuels. The primary objectives of this study were to assess opportunities and obstacles in the treatment and energy conversion using… CONTINUE READING
