EXAMPLE: UK’s first ‘poo bus’ hits the road

Wasting waste is a waste. Posted by the Guardian, this article demonstrates the potential economic and environment value of waste. Imagine how this model could apply in both developed and developing countries..

“Britain’s first ‘poo bus’ will take to the road on Thursday, powered entirely by human and food waste.

The 40-seat “Bio-Bus” runs on biomethane gas, generated through the treatment of sewage and food waste. It can travel up to 186 miles on one tank of gas, which takes the annual waste of around five people to produce.

The bus is run by Bath Bus Company and will transport passengers between Bath and Bristol Airport.

Engineers believe the bus could provide a sustainable way of fuelling public transport while improving urban air quality.”
