Biofuel from Human Waste to Fuel 15% of England's Need
Not only are third world countries jumping at the chance to install municipal utility stations that can make biofuel from human waste, even Great Britain has announced an ambitious plan for the city of Oxfordshire to employ a municiple human waste biofuel utility system. This system is to be the pilot for Oxfordshire's first in a series of "human gas recycling projects" which will eventually go nation-wide. According to a recent Reuter's article, the UK National Grid believes it is possible that this human waste biofuel joint venture between British Gas, Thames Water and Scotia Gas Networks could meet up to 15% of Britain's energy needs by 2020.
Many renewable energy experts believe that converting human waste into biofuel could be the holy grail of sustainable, reliable green energy -- but only if they can find a way to make it palatable to the public. Studies have proven that by using a simple aerobic system that naturally breaks down the sewage, the final biofuel product made from human waste does not have an odor and can be treated with the same scent used for natural gas.
