Well, we finally had to do it, turn on the heating system in the house. Which lead me to thinking, worrying really, about what the cost of heating the house will run us this year, which lead me to thinking about the conversation my husband and I had not to long ago about biomass electricity. You know the poo for power possibility. It's more than a possibility actually; it's now a very real source of renewable energy that can reduce our relying on fossil fuels. Biomass electricity comes from combusting or decomposing organic matter, with municipal solid waste being just part of the equation. Human waste is that part of the biomass equation though that induces the "gross out" factor for most people. Towns in the UK are already utilizing power from sewage waste, and several cities here in the US have been entertaining the benefits of "poo power". When you get right down to it, why not use the stuff. Sewage treatment could be an even better source of fuel than landfills, which have already been in common use for quite a while now. After all, with everyone wanting to be as natural and organic as possible you can't get much more organic now can you?
