The bus that runs on poop

UK – The first ever bus powered by food waste and human poo has gone into service between Bristol and Bath.
The 40-seater Bio-Bus runs on gas generated through the treatment of sewage and food waste and engineers believe it could provide a sustainable way of fuelling public transport and cutting emissions in polluted towns and cities.
Running on waste products that are both renewable and sustainable, the bus can travel up to 300km on a full tank of gas generated at Bristol sewage treatment works, which is run by GENeco, a subsidiary of Wessex Water.
Bath Bus Company, which is operating the service, said the bus was greener for the environment and added that it was extremely pleased to be using the Bio-Bus for its rapidly growing A4 service from Bath to Bristol Airport.  More
