Sewage & Power
There seems to be many unexplored avenues in which sewage can be utilized. The ‘Dutch Foundation for Applied Water Research’ is now thinking of using their sewage as a means of an energy- generating powerhouse by the year 2030. Such a process will utilize the primary sludge from the wastewater, thereafter adding chemicals to create an ‘energy neutral plant’.
Already, such a plant is being built in Utrecht, where other resources from the sewage such as phosphorous are being considered as a means of fuel.

This sounds innovative. It is thinking like this that will help our planet in the long run. As a society we need to find ways to utilize our waste for good. Not just sewage, but the garbage we throw away as well.
