365 Days of Fun and Chillaxation – 298 – New York to Harness Renewable Energy of Sewage
Now this is the kind of news I like to read: “New York City’s sewage treatment plants will now be in the business of harvesting and selling renewable energy. Heating fuel will be extracted from sludge, butanol (a gasoline alternative) extracted from the algae that grows in wastewater and, of course, methane gas will be captured from sewage plants’ digesters” (EcoGeek). I know that New York are on a mission to become the world’s most sustainable city. Awesome. Just think, we could be doing the same here in New Zealand. In fact I know plans have been in the pipe line (‘scuse the pun) for this to happen in Blenheim, and perhaps Christchurch (I’m thinking Vikki Buck) for years. I’ll post up any news I hear about this happening here, or actually ANYWHERE as this sort of smart thinking about generating energy is the way of the future!
