Sussex will recycle more than 150 thousand tons of chicken litter annually.
The site will produce 3-5 megawatts of electricity that will contribute to Delaware Electric Cooperative’s existing power grid, enough to power approximately 3,500 homes. The facility will also remove phosphorous from the chicken litter and stabilize other nutrients for reuse by local farmers as a slow-release fertilizer. The project is supported by the Delaware Department of Agriculture, Delmarva Poultry Industry, the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays and the Delaware Electric Cooperative.
