Farm To Run On Chicken Waste
A farm in Herefordshire will become the first chicken farm in the UK to be powered solely on…chicken poo. The Great Ynys Farm, in Hereford, will use the waste from chickens to generate a new income stream as a renewable energy generator. The green electricity will be able to power the poultry houses and will sell off about 90% of the power to the National Grid. The AD (Anaerobic Digestion) system will have capacity to process 700 tonnes of poultry litter and 1000 tonnes of cattle slurry, mixed with 3000 tonnes of maize silage a year.
