Heating with chicken litter

Chicken litter as fuel

After years of intensive research & development, BINDER Energietechnik succeeded in developing a biomass boiler for the combustion of chicken litter with the lowest emission levels.

This results in ideal conditions for an economical and ecological operation of a heating system – with chicken litter as fuel.

BINDER combustion systems for the combustion of chicken litter or other fuels with a low calorific value is available in 2 different sizes with 3 power stages:

Size 1 800 kW 1.000 kW 1.200 kW
Size 2 1.600 kW 1.800 kW 2.000 kW

Advantages of the system

  • Efficient combustion of organic material & other materials with a low calorific value
  • Innovative technology
  • Lowest emissions due to a special heat exchanger technology
  • Economical and ecological operation – also in extreme partial load

Due to the keeping of chickens, the boiler is operated in extreme partial load the most time. To reach a constant high efficiency rate at lowest emissions in partial load, the BINDER “Vario Heat Exchanger” (VWT) – a new heat exchanger concept was developed.

With an operation time of about 3.000 full-load-hours per year of a BINDER chicken litter boiler with a power output of 800 kW about 2,4 GWh of thermal energy is neccesary.

An ordinary chicken produces about 25 kg chicken litter per year with an calorific value of about 2,4 kWh/kg.

To cover the total fuel amount of 1.000 t of chicken litter, about 40.000 chickens are necessary.
