Harnessing Human Feces for Power in the UK–Cooking and Staying Warm is Now a Reality With Creating Biomethane

Participation and contributions with this project are no problem and the power of the toilet is providing energy solutions to around 200 homes. It takes 3 weeks and the average consumer produces around 30 kilos of raw material every year. That was interesting to find out too.
The smell of natural gas is added and it burns just like regular gas. This could be fueling many additional homes in the near future and they are doing something useful here as it has to go somewhere. There’s certainly no shortage of raw material <grin>. BD
Oct 6 - British householders are cooking and staying warm with gas produced in their toilets following the completion of a project to make biomethane from human waste and distribute it through the country's gas network. Stuart McDill reports.
