Thermal Conversion of Animal Manure to Biofuel

Continued advances in technology have facilitated new avenues to access and extract energy (in various forms) from materials such as animal manure and crop residues that have not traditionally been considered viable fuel sources.

Thermo-Chemical conversion encompasses the chemical conversion of such biomass feed stocks into energy products through action of thermal processes such as Combustion, Gasification, and Pyrolysis. Biomass gasification is a well-developed technology that has the potential to convert various feed stocks into value added products for on-farm heat generation and carbon sequestration. The availability of on-farm gasifiers that can handle diverse feed stocks is limited and represents a hurdle to the widespread utilization.

Please tune-in to the upcoming Thermal Conversion of Animal Manure to Biofuel webinar, as Dr. Sammy Sadaka discusses his current research efforts in Thermo-chemical conversion technologies and explores some of the bio-energy prospects that this field offers.


An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.

Presenters include:
  • Samy Sadaka, University of Arkansas
  • Rick Fields, University of Arkansas
