Chief Fuel Analyst
It was a two week assignment to cover the very important role of Chief Fuel Analyst in a power station.

A grandious job title and at the age of 18 and seemingly hired purely on the basis of my recently acquired A Level in Chemistry, how could I say no, it would just look so awesome on my CV.

However, this was no ordinary powerstation - the fuel to be analysed was poultry litter, or to use the technical phrase, chicken and turkey shit. Fifteen or so 25t loads of it a day, had to dig down, get a sample, do IR moisture test, to physical loss method mouture test, ash content. My Lab, which was in the same shed as the 1000t of fuel upfront of the incinerator, had a certain odour that made you both high and nausious at the same time.

But the work was easy, and the other lads let me play (PLAY!) with the forklift truck, even allowing me to join their FLT Racing League, as well as dick around with the cherry picker!

I would
assume he's testing it before they burn it.

Maybe the chickens have been smoking cigars.
