Indubitably, the world today is in a state of dependent towards energy for developments. It is no riddle today that world is heavily reliant on oil as the primary source of fuel for energy and oil is known to be a finite source of fuel, thus with the increasing need and usage, the source itself is depleting. Scientists and developers are ever in desperation to seek a new source of energy to prepare for the inevitable day when oil is completely depleted. Biomass provides an ample alternative for a renewable energy source. Nevertheless, extracting energy from poultry waste is not as simple as combusting fuel oil. Poultry waste is far more distinguished compare to oil. Although the step of recovering energy is somewhat similar to oil, that is by combusting the poultry waste, it is not as simple as throwing the poultry waste into a combustor and hope for the best. Poultry waste is known to have a high moist content, thus recovering energy using Fluidized Bed Combustor is a problem as it is not as efficient. Moreover, the high content of water in poultry waste will lead to a waste of energy as it is being use to dry up the moisture.A drying technique is required to ensure the moist content of poultry waste is lowered and possibly purge completely. A spraying technique is developed as one of the technique to be used for drying up the poultry waste. Simulation using FLUENT 6.3 will be conducted to analyze the effectiveness of droplets in drying mechanism. Success in developing this spraying technique will ensure the optimum energy recovery from poultry waste and reduction of cost.
