Planet Found Energy Development

Poultry
This project is designed to reduce the amount of phosphorus contained in poultry litter from being land-applied in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed while generating electricity.  An anaerobic digester is used to convert chicken litter into methane gas which, in turn, is used to produce electricity (26 k Wh plant producing an estimated 100,000 k Wh/yr). The electricity will be predominantly used to run the system (“parasitic load”), but the system will send excess electricity not used on the farm to the grid. Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium will be separated into three distinct fertilizer products for on-farm use or sale.

Millennium Farms is located in Worcester County and has six poultry houses.
