Effect of fluidized bed combustion residue on performance and physiology of broilers



Effect of fluidized bed combustion residue on performance and physiology of broilers



Poultry Science 62(12): 2378-2382



Fluidized bed combustion is a desulfurization process used by some coal-fired power plants. Because .apprx. 200 kg of fluidized bed combustion residue (FBCR) containing circa 42.9% Ca is generated per 1000 kg of coal burned, FBCR represents a significant potential source of nutritional Ca. Broilers were reared in 3 trials using FBCR as a Ca source. In Trial 1, body weights, feed efficiencies, relative liver weights, liver lipid, and bone ash of humerii and tibiae were determined when the broiler chicks reached 21 days of age. In Trials 2 and 3, plasma protein, hematocrits, and Hb were determined at 42 days of age, and body weight, feed efficiencies, liver lipid, and relative bursa, kidney, and liver weights were determined when the broilers reached 53 days and 48 days of age, respectively. A slight improvement in body weight was attributed to the FBCR diets in 2 of the 3 trials. Bone ash and various physiological parameters evaluated indicate that Ca in FBCR is as available as that in limestone. Percent liver lipid was significantly increased in 2 of the 3 trials due to FBCR, and relative liver weight was increased in 1 of the 3 trials. FBCR may contain substances that cause changes in metabolism and further evaluation may be warranted.
