Quite interesting to have another story devoted towards….poop. Not too long ago we talked about a cozy concrete bench powered by warm sewage. Now, the latest most smelly story, involves a town in India called Thiruneermalai to power their street lights by poo.
The authorities in the town are using human waste to collect in a sump. Methane gas produced from the “sludge” is used to operate the generator. Daily, the biogas produce 3,000 watts of daily electricity which is enough to power the lights during the night.
