How It Works.

Fluidised Bed Combustion Designed For Poultry Sites

The Process

Poultry litter from one batch is combusted on the farm to provide clean, dry renewable heat to sustain the next batch. Surplus heat is available to produce renewable power for use on the farm or export to the grid. Major savings are made in the consumption of propane for heating. The next batch of chickens thrive in the warm, dry, optimally ventilated, low ammonia conditions of the poultry house, putting on more weight for each kilogramme of grain fed to them. The litter they produce is drier and less odorous. Rather than being transported elsewhere for disposal, with ever-growing environmental consequences, the litter is securely stored on the farm and then combusted on the farm to produce the heat and power for the next batch.


Litter Revolution

Thus the sustainable cycle is completed, heating costs are saved, bird welfare is ensured, the environment is respected and extra revenue is generated and margins improved.


Fluidised Bed Combustion uses a heated bed of sand suspended (fluidised) within a rising column of air to burn many different types of biomass. The technique results in good combustion efficiency of variable moisture content fuels and is adaptable to a wide variety of low grade biomass/organic fuels.

Fluidised Bed Combustion


The system has been developed from the outset to be delivered as a managed service so the customer can focus on its business while bhsl serves the customer’s energy needs. The fuel handling and plant are installed into a custom built energy centre operated by bhsl. bhsl’s support processes and remote-management facilities complement and underpin bhsl’s reliable and safe combustion technology.

Following trials in Ireland and the UK, Brussels introduced implementing rules for using Manure as a Fuel in Combustion. The bhsl energy centre is designed to meet all the regulatory requirements for operation as an on farm manure to energy in plant in Europe.
