Energy recovery of livestock waste can not only reduce waste pollution but also generate renewable energy and further create economic benefits. Currently, most of livestock waste in Taiwan is treated as waste without efficiently recycled. This paper aims to explore and evaluate the energy recovery of livestock waste in Taiwan and further provide policy suggestions. Study results show that small farming scale of livestock industry in Taiwan leads to a lower efficiency of biogas energy recovery. Besides, the environment with relative low price of electricity and high invest cost for power generation plant is hard to provide incentive for implementation of energy recovery which has further caused difficulty on policy promotion for renewable energy recovery of livestock waste in Taiwan. Policy reform with increasing feed-in tariffs and differentiated feed-in tariffs for biogas power is suggested to stimulate energy recycling of livestock waste in Taiwan.
