What a crappy idea! But seriously, good work, lol.
When I read the title I though about a bunch of chavs on stationary bicycles. Don't know why.
clean water? errrrrrrrrrrrrrrr no thanks lol
but does sound interesting
And you wonder why many people propose using compressed natural gas (CNG) to fuel personal vehicles. Since CNG can come from many different sources (gas fields, biomass, etc.) and CNG burns very cleanly, it could be a very effectively transitional technology for cleaner cars until battery technology catches up for long-range motor vehicle use.
Excellent, lets do it
"UK Prepares to Use Human Waste to Power Homes" - that would suit the state of the housing stock in the UK. It's not just my impression. According to the OECD, the UK and Ireland has the worst housing stock in Western Europe.
UK is run by old farts?
I think Oslo has it's buses running on biomethane?
bearing in mind the tech has been around since the 10th century
it's a bit bizarre it's not more widesread
So where do you think your clean water is now coming from? From the unlimited supply of fresh water in the sky? All water is basically recycled crap. (or human waste is basically watered down feces). See image. It's in dutch, but you'll understand.
The poster stated that they don't want clean water. Maybe they like their feces sludge?
I like idea. There is certainly an endless supply to be had! Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
Good idea. I wonder how efficient it is though?
Also, I wonder if my diet will affect the quality of gas
Eat McDonalds and your cooker turns off.
That was my initial thought as well. I think it is worth looking into.
Oslo city council is taking the electricity used to generate the fuel into consideration and calculate that carbon emissions per bus are 18 tonnes per year, a saving of 44 tonnes of C02 per bus per year.
I doubt it will have any effect on the quality of the gas, but it should make a difference in the quantity. I've got a t-shirt that reads: World's Greatest Source of Natural Gas.
MacRumors uses similar technology. They use all the BS from the PRSI to power the whole site.
Not in the US. Waste treatment plants typically just make the water safe to dump into the ocean or a river. We get our water from reservoirs and wells.
There may be some local exception to that, some agricultural use maybe, but the crazy water people would roll over and die on the spot if they thought they were drinking recycle ca ca.
I sure as hell can't read Dutch, nobody can, but that body of water depicted in the illustration may well be the ocean, not a recycle situation. It just looks like it is being treated as it is elsewhere.
The space station, submarines and such have hugely complex and expensive recycling systems, but they have to.
But how do these reservoirs eventually get filled? And over here, the clean waste water gets dumped in the rivers ( Rhine, Maas etc ) and that water is used downstream to make drinking water.
I can read Dutch btw. My mommy taught me.
Baked beans + car seats with a pipe built into the seat that leads straight into the engine = profit!!
And you won't be needing seatbelts anymore! (if the pipe is long enough)
lol, just what are you implying here.
What a wonderful idea. Bring to Washington DC and they could supply all of New England with clean energy! There may even be enough for the Mid-West as well. DC is loaded with the stuff!
