TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY: Oslo Buses to run on Poo Power!
Rather than let all their sewage go to waste, the city of Oslo recently announced that it plans to cut carbon emissions by converting 80 public buses to run on biomethane generated from raw sewage. These poo-powered buses are part of the city’s plan to become carbon neutral by 2050, and stand to cut around 44 tonnes of CO2 per bus, per year.
If this test is successful, the city plans to convert the rest of the buses to run on biogas, and the first buses will start running in September 2009.
