Biogas CHP to power US poultry plant

A new $5.3 million combined heat and power (CHP) plant is using methane gas for power generation at a Pilgrim's Pride poultry facility in South Carolina, US.

Stellar Energy was selected by Blue Earth, Inc to design and supply a CHP plant at the Pilgrim's Pride Corporation poultry processing facility located in Sumter. Blue Earth will own and operate the $5.3 million energy plant.

The plant will utilise methane from the Pilgrim's Pride digester to produce electricity, hot water and usable gas for plant boilers.

Commenting, Rob Potts, President and COO of Blue Earth, said: ‘As a developer and owner of energy efficient and renewable energy solutions for commercial and industrial facilities, Blue Earth is committed to cogeneration as an environmentally thoughtful and cost-effective technology.’
