Eco-Friendly Bristol ‘Poo Bus’ Powered By Human Waste

The United Kingdom has launched a bus powered by food waste and human waste that services a route between Bristol and Bath. A treatment facility in Bristol run by a company called GENeco, a subsidiary of Wessex Water, supplies treated waste products that are renewable and sustainable. Engineers suggest the Bio-Bus could offer a sustainable way to fuel public transport and reduce emissions in polluted areas. The bus seats 40 people and can travel up to three hundred kilometres on a full tank of fuel with services growing rapidly since its launch. GENeco general manager, Mohammed Saddiq, said, “Through treating sewage and food that’s unfit for human consumption we’re able to produce enough bio-methane to provide a significant supply of gas. Using bio-methane in this way not only provides a sustainable fuel, but also reduces our reliance on traditional fossil fuels.”
