Techlology Brief HoSt constructed a 3 MWth chicken manure gasifier in Tzum in the Netherlands. The gasifier is a circulating fluidized bed (CFB). The gas is used in a low-NOx gas boiler to produce heat and electricity. The chicken farm uses the heat. Power is delivered to the grid. The plant has been successfully started spring 2006. During 2006 and 2007 several improvements have been made (new ash removal system, new fuel dryer, …). it has been operated 3500 h in 2007. Main problem remains the supply of sufficiently dry fuel (chicken manure). HoSt constructed a second chicken manure gasifier in Portugal as part of a 1 MWe CHP plant in 2010.
