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

McKinney, Texas [August 17, 2017] – 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.

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.

“Poultry farmers have many concerns, including declining profits, poultry litter management and poultry health,” said Rocky Irwin, a founding member of Global Re-Fuel and a Texas poultry grower for more than 10 years. “The Global Re-Fuel warm-air biomass furnace provides a cost-effective solution to these concerns. Following years of development, we are ready to share this renewable energy opportunity with the crowdfunding community to further advance this unique technology.”

Added Irwin, “We are eager to secure crowdfunding support and begin taking pre-orders from poultry farmers to bring our furnace to market because we know the PLF-500 warm-air biomass furnace is good for the family farm and the environment.”
