Abstract This study critically examined the feasibility of using thermochemical processes such as combustion, pyrolysis, and partial oxidation and anaerobic digestion as methods for utilizing livestock and poultry manures as renewable sources of energy. Technical, economic, and environmental quality aspects were considered. Results of this study indicate that livestock and poultry manures can, at best, supply only a small fraction of U.S. energy requirements and cannot significantly reduce the dependence of U.S. agriculture on petroleum fuels. It also was found that the technical feasibility of manurial biogas production has been adequately demonstrated and a rational basis for system design and operation has been established. Although manurial biogas production is technically feasible, economic feasibility was found to be site specific depending on available biogas utilization options.
