UK town powered by chicken waste

Located in Cirencester in Gloucester, UK, heat and power supplier Alfagy’s new biogas plant is expected to open in November this year.

The opening of the new facility, which will produce power from chicken waste, in addition to corn and wheat, will make Cirencester one of the first towns in the UK to receive renewable electricity sourced from poultry litter.

The CHP unit will generate around 1MW of green power, benefitting 350 local households, while the heat will be used for drying grain and heating homes and animal sheds.
