The UK’s First Poop-Powered Bus

What a crappy idea

A local waste treatment facility in the UK called GENeco has created a bus that runs entirely on human waste. The 40-seater bio bus can travel 300 kilometres on one tank of fuel, which equals about five people’s annual excrement.

Not only does GENeco synthesize the odour-free fuel that powers the bio bus, they also provide poop-power to 8, 500 homes. It’s also (obviously) an entirely renewable energy source.
