CASE STUDY: Bolu Guc Birligi

Suistainable bioenergy in Türkiye

Bolu, in north-western Türkiye, has a thriving poultry industry. Around one-quarter of all national broiler chicken production (chicken bred and raised for meat) comes from the area. As broiler farms are abundant here, the sheer scale of production makes poultry waste a significant environmental problem and a public health risk. To address this issue, farm owners and local businesses have come together to form Bolu Güç Birliği (BGB), a bioenergy company that turns broiler litter (a mix of chicken bedding, chicken droppings, spilled feed and feathers) into renewable energy.
