CHIMERA reinvents the chicken manure disposal process. Chicken manure is an organic waste, rarely perceived as a polluting agent; however, it is rich of toxic elements such as nitrogen oxide (N2O), ammonia (NH3) and methane (CH4) which contaminate air, soil and groundwater.
Nowadays, chicken manure disposal is twofold: the waste is either bestowed to waste-to-energy plants or directly broadcasted on the ground. Costs related to storage, transport, disposal and/or broadcasting are high for the farmer.
CHIMERA solves all those issues related to waste management. A “ready and easy to use” solution, which works in small farms or farm districts for meat (broiler) and/or eggs production laying hen. The dimension of the plant is limited and can be installed within any sized farm.
CHIMERA’s ambition consists of transforming waste into a fertilizer, while producing energy. CHIMERA solution: from manure to flowers!
This project becomes true thanks to the EU financing of the LIFE programme, GA n. LIFE15 ENV/IT/000631, and the collaboration between Tre P Engineering Srl, Italian engineering company and project coordinator, and Renders&Renders V.O.F., Dutch farmer.
