Abstract


It is known that around 11 billion pounds of waste from poultry industry accumulates every year, we also have endless appetite for chicken and other poultry products. The feathers cannot be just kept only in pillows, but we need to utilize it as under grade feed for animal. An environmentally safe process is created for converting feather meal of chicken into biofuel. It is also found that feather meal consists of blood, innards apart from processed chicken feather. So, this way of research, would save much of the fuel input cost for many industries, by using the chicken feather as their energy input. It is a multi beneficial way of processing them into biodiesel, because we have significantly huge amount of feather every year and it's also found protein rich and easy to convert into fuel form. In this paper we preliminarily discuss how chicken feather meal is processed further. Also we will discuss how it may be considered having a potential for an alternative energy in different forms. Apart from using it as energy, how can we use it for other value added products such as holdup of hydrogen, is also discussed.

Author Keywords: Biofuel, Chicken feather meal, Innards, Poultry, Protein.
