Anyone producing power from horse stable biomass?

Postby summerleeze » Sun Mar 08, 2009 9:14 am

First, a confession. I know nothing about Stirling engines beyond
basic principles. Is it possible to produce power from horse manure
(with large wood shaving content) to produce power? Probably have
200,000 lbs plus per year and would be great to put it to good use on
the farm. Frankly I have put so much money into this facility that
it is not possible to grab a high priced item off the shelf, but need
to take a more conservative approach.
Thanks in advance for any comments or help.

In a word, NO. Go back up the threads to "Materials limiting the economic aspects of a Stirling engine?" and read all following post and comments.
There are no such Stirling engines in production at any price that I am aware of.
