Siberian recycling reactor to help poultry farms

6 Aug '15
Scientists in Novosibirsk. In Siberia, have obtained a Russian patent for their organic waste recycling system for poultry farms, the Russian news agency TASS reported.

“Applications for our equipment are fairly wide as it can be used to recycle any sort of organic waste. However, we have focused for now on thermo-chemical recycling of chicken manure, a kind of waste which poultry farms increasingly find problematic to dispose of,” said Sergei Vilchek, the project manager.

The unit, which is a new kind of reactor, reportedly has the capacity to recycle into ashes 10 tons of waste a day. The product could then be used as mineral fertilizer.

Earlier this year the Siberian project received about $120,000 as a grant from Russia’s Bortnik Fund, a state-owned fund financing small tech-focused companies in Russia. A corporate investor, Novosibirsk Poultry, came up with matching funds to support the effort.

According to Mr. Vilchek, each poultry farm may need up to ten such units. The projected payback period for such a system is within three years, he said.
