First Poo Powered Bio Waste Powered Bus Starts in the UK

Geneco’s new Bio-Bus is powered by gas generated via the treatment of sewage and food waste. It goes without saying that public transport systems around the world are moving to greener forms of power. Buses in South Korea and the UK, for example, are being powered from electricity from underneath the road surface. Not only is the fuel for the Bio-Bus said to produce fewer emissions than traditional diesel engines, but it is also locally sourced.

The United Kingdom’s first bus powered entirely by human and food waste has gone into service between Bristol and Bath. Engineers believe the bus could provide a sustainable way of fuelling public transport — cutting emissions in polluted towns and cities. The 40-seater Bio-Bus, which runs on gas generated through the treatment of sewage and food waste that’s unfit for human consumption, helps to improve urban air quality as it produces fewer emissions than traditional diesel engines.

GENeco claim to be the first company in the UK to start injecting gas generated from food waste and sewage into the national gas grid network and at the same time installing a gas refuelling plant for the bus. The Bio-Bus can travel up to 300km on a full tank of gas, which takes the annual waste of around five people to produce. The first passengers to get on board the Bio-Bus were visitors to the UK who were commuting from Bristol Airport to the city of Bath.
