!! OMG, how earthy: Poo to Energy in Canada !!

The Toronto Zoo has a plan to turn the animal doodies into energy for us peoples to enjoy.

With more than 5,000 animals that call the zoo home, workers there say there is no shortage of raw material for making energy. It is proposing to build a plant that would convert animal and food waste into biogas using bacteria.

“These bacteria are going to have a feast on this stuff, this feces that would have gone to waste and put the methane straight up into the air, and they’re going to produce more methane quickly that we can use to shove through a generator and produce electricity,” said zoo curator David Ireland.

Oh I’m so excited about the future now that we’re going to be filling up our cars at the elephant’s bum!
