Global Re-Fuel Launches Indiegogo Campaign to Drive Interest in Its Renewable Energy Biomass Furnace for Poultry Farmers

Global Re-Fuel’s on-farm warm-air biomass furnace converts raw poultry litter into energy, providing heat to broiler houses – eliminating the need for propane. Its conversion of poultry litter to a pathogen-free organic fertilizer helps reduce the nutrient overload and runoff that can cause algae bloom dead zones in waterways.

MCKINNEY, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global Re-Fuel has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to bring new energy technology to market, which will significantly impact poultry farming. Its PLF-500 warm-air litter-fueled furnace offers a pioneering farm technology that addresses several financial, health and environmental issues facing the agriculture industry.
