Energy Recovery from Industrial Feather Waste by Gasification

Constantin Stan
Abstract—The paper presents the results of research study focused on gasification process applied to industrial feather waste for syngas production. The waste used for the experimental campaign was sampled from a local slaughterhouse, directly from the poultry processing line to preserve the product real characteristics. Based on physical-chemical composition, established experimentally, steam gasification process using a laboratory scale tubular batch reactor was used. The results offer efficient solutions to poultry process industry, one of the fastest growing sectors from food industry with considerable amounts of waste generation annually by increasing the competitiveness and energy recovery. The composition of syngas consists in high percentage of H2 up to 43%. The study results contribute to a new vision of going green, improving the sustainability of communities and the health of human and finally offering a solution regarding the waste management of a problematic industrial waste.

Index Terms—Energy recovery, industrial feather waste, gasification, syngas.
