Manchester Recycles Sewage!


I've come across another interesting development in Manchester; apparently United Utilities in partnership with WRAP are planning to roll out a scheme across Greater Manchester which will involve commercial sewage recycling! Apparently it can be converted into a biomethane which can then be used in place of gas to warm people's homes etc. This limitless supply of sustainable energy presents a great opportunity as it significantly reduces the carbon footprint of gas import and might even represent a significant cost saving to the end user, according to Caroline Ashton - Biofuels Manager, United Utilities.

Whilst at first you might turn your nose up at the thought of powering your home with recycled sewage, it really is the ultimate example of closed loop recycling!

Onwards & upwards!
