This link was sent to me by one of my customers.
It contains plans for also building a waste water treatment unit, batch composters, and other cool things.
Another cool link:
One of my renewable energy chemist buddies took me to a farm in Mississippi where they are using anaerobic digestion for the chicken litter. Heated by solar and wood-fired heat, they capture the methane and compress it into one of those farm-size propane tanks (almost 18-wheeler size). The water that is decanted off the top of the 150,000 gallon (or so) digestion tank has a 3-3-3 fertilizer value. The solids left after digestion have NO odor and an 11-11-11 fertilizer value. How cool is that?
They are looking into pelletizing the digested material. Imagine that... they may make more on the digested poop than the chickens that did the pooping!
I call this the synergy of renewable energy. Love it!
