Turning Chesapeake Bay Watershed Poultry Manure and Litter into Energy

The purpose of this report is to analyze the feasibility of using poultry litter for energy in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.  Using excess manure to feed energy generation systems in this region could potentially result in a reduced nutrient load to the Bay, thus improving water quality.  In order to better assess the feasibility of this option, this report explores technologies that could potentially be used to convert poultry litter into energy and identifies impediments and incentives that a litter-to-energy project may encounter.
