Technical Abstract: This research investigates the technical and economical viability of a proprietary catalytic wet gasification process in treating animal wastewater, capturing nutrients, destroying pharmaceutically active compounds (PACs) and estrogens, and producing methane. This study reviews and analyzes physicochemical properties of swine and poultry manure. Based on this information, the catalytic wet gasification technology is evaluated in terms of technical feasibility, energy requirements and production, and the costs for installation, operation and maintenance. The costs are directly compared with conventional disposal costs of the manures.
