|Abstract: ||Conversion of poultry litter to energy can serve as a renewable energy source and provide an
alternative to land application in areas where poultry production is intensive. Economies of
size may limit a farmer’s ability to economically use on-farm conversion. Capital costs can be
spread across several poultry farmers to convert poultry litter to energy in a centralized facility.
This research determined influences on the amount of litter poultry producers will to
sell to a centralized conversion facility, on their willingness to invest in a conversion cooperative,
and on the prices for litter required to divert litter from current uses.|
