Abstract: Energy consumption in Turkey increases rapidly. Therefore, non-renewable energy resources are expected to be run out in the future. In this study, importance of usage of animal origin waste, which is one of the non-renewable energy resources, average fertilizer and biogas quantity which can be gained by animal origin waste and their economic contribution are discussed. Energy amount was calculated in case of transferring of animal waste of bovines and ovines in Tokat to average fertilizer and biogas energy quantity. Total consumed energy amount at Tokat in 2007 is 552319150 Kwh. Also, electrical energy quantity, which can be gained by transferring the total biogas amount obtained from animal origin waste is 177964359 Kwh. In this situation, an income of 32% can be achieved at the quantity of electricity consumed in one year in case of using animal origin waste.
