Simple pretreatmentof raw chicken manureby cold and hot water extractionincreased the crucial for fermentation C:N ratio 2 to 2.7-fold. The pretreated chicken manure thus became suitable for methane fermentation as monosubstrate, this is due to higher C:N ratio. Cumulative methane and biogas production after pretreatment increasedabout 18–40% and 16–45%, respectively.
