A new milestone for CHIMERA: the pilot plant is running in the Netherlands at the Renders&Renders kennel (partner of 3P Engineering in the LIFE project), in the Noord-Brabant region, managed by Mark and Jack Renders (in the photo with the CHIMERA team). In the Netherlands, the plant will operate continuously for 6,000 hours a year, disposing of at least 1,500 tons of chicken manure per year. The Pilot Plant is equipped with ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) for the conversion of heat into electricity: the challenge is to ensure complete self-sufficiency for the farm in terms of thermal energy (production 4.5 GWh per year) and get about 150 tons of fertilizer. The water obtained from the treatment of chicken manure, which is a wet substance, is completely reused to hydrate the ashes and reduce the polluting emissions contained in the fumes, without any dispersion.
