There IS a way to dispose of chicken dung in a way that's efficient, profitable and environmentally friendly - and Zuccato Energia has already implemented it! Click here for Info...
A low-enthalpy, high-efficiency LT-ORC module that's ideal for waste heat recovery from low temperature thermal sources (e.g. engine cooling jackets, flue gases, geothermal heat)
A Rankine-cycle power production module ideal for primary power production in small/medium sized plants when combined with any type of boiler
Our Low Temperature Organic Rankine Cycle power generation modules are all mounted in self-contained skids ready to be integrated in your system by simply connecting them to the thermal loop (hot or overheated water depending on the model).

Plant: 1 x ZE-100-LT ORC energy production module
Application: Primary energy production in combination with a boiler burning wood chips
This plant, located in San Pietro in Gu, a small village in a corner of the province of Padua adjoining the province of Vicenza, is a small-scale thermoelectric power plant born to take advantage of the favorable incentives for small-scale energy production from renewable sources.
In this particular case, the client - the livestock farm "La Ceresina" - was equipped with a biogas generation facility, where the biogas produced by the fermentation of the manure produced by their 1000-plus head of cattle fueled two MAN engine generators.
The ZE-50-ULH power generation module supplied by Zuccato Energia produces an additional 50kWE by recovering residual heat from the cooling jackets and the exhaust fumes of the above mentioned engines, thus increasing overall plant performance.
Our ORC system is in this case located outdoors, under a lean-to. Upon client request, the control system has been installed inside a nearby existing shelter (which also hosts the control boards for the engines and the fermentation plant) instead being installed on board the skid as usual.
The fuel used in this plant (biogas) is an environment-friendly, renewable power source, made cost-efective also by state ad regional incentives. It is also CO2-neutral, as the CO2 its combustion releases is the same that was captured by the plants upon which which the cattle fed.
Below you may find a small photo gallery regarding this plant and its installation.
