The primary purpose of this report was to identify and summarize by-product-from-animal-wastes-recovery processes from the current literature. By-product recovery processes are distinguishable from wastes reuse and recycle processes by the formation of a chemically or physically changed product or by-product from the wastes as produced. Most of the schemes investigated were grouped into either biological or thermochemical processes. Methane production, a biological process utilizing anaerobic fermentation of the wastes, is receiving the greatest amount of popular and scientific attention. The economics of methane storage is the strongest deterrent to the development of this process for widespread application. Thermochemical processes investigated include conversion to oil and oil-like tars; anhydrous ammonia synthesis gas and ethylene; hydrogasification; manufacture of carbon black, carbon black substitutes, and fillers and foaming agents in foam glass construction materials; and other fuels and construction products.
