Agricultural counselors from the French Embassy in Washington, D.C., visited Pennsylvania-based Enginuity Energy LLC to learn about Ecoremedy gasification technology, which can convert agricultural waste, specifically poultry manure, into energy.

France is a leading poultry producing country in the European Union, and a recent report by the French Agricultural Ministry outlined a number of key imperatives for the poultry industry and poultry farmers with a focus on economies of scale, renewable energy and improved efficient technology. Ecoremedy technology uses renewable energy and nutrient-rich ash as a substitute for chemical fertilizers, according to the company.
