Bath - Yesterday the first ever poo bus in the United Kingdom hit the streets. The bus is powered on human waste and food waste.
The poo bus is known as the Bio-Bus, and it can seat 40 people and it is capable of going up to 186 miles on a full tank. The bio-methane gas is generated by a process that is known as anaerobic digestion, according to Engadget.
Bristol sewage treatment works generates the gas. It is run by GENeco, a subsidiary of Wessex Water.
Sainsbury, a supermarket giant in the UK, uses the same method to power one of its stores in Cannock, West Midlands.
Bath Bus Company runs the poo bus, which will shuttle commuters between the airport in Bristol and the city center in Bath.
Mohammed Saddiq, the general manager of Geneco, said gas-powered vehicles have an important role to play when it comes to improving the air quality the cities located throughout the UK. He continued to say that the Bio-Bus goes further and is powered by people living in the local area.
Geneco released a statement and said it is also injecting gas made from food waste to power more than 8,000 homes.
Poo is not just used to power vehicles, but in the past someone was working on creating the world's most expensive tea and panda poo was going to be one of the ingredients in it.
