Excerpt:
“The project proposes to use organic waste generated in large quantities in poultry and pig farms in the Bío Bío (slurry, manure, sawdust, shavings, feathers and leftover feed) to simultaneously produce a carbonaceous material (biochar) and thermal energy.
“This is accomplished by pyrolysis, a technique with wide acceptance in the global context as a mechanism for disposal of organic waste, in a safe, environmentally friendly and cost effective way.”
