i'm pretty sure you can get methane from faeces. extract the methane from raw sewage, you could probably extract more than just methane, what's left after extraction can be used to make bricks/building materials.

Apparently synthetic gasoline can be created from water and air?

i saw that on the news yesterday. it said at the end that it's gonna be another 10 years before they could make it efficient enough, something like that.

we make too much co2 so they're gonna recycle it, but nature already has a way of recycling co2, plants and trees. planting more plants and trees would naturally give us oxygen. we don't need extensive research and expensive processes to give us more oxygen. methane naturally occurs in shit.

we can do a lot with sewage, it's an untapped resource.

i bet shit could be good for roof tiles or insulating walls. it's methane that makes shit stink.

but since it's a natural resource that everyone contributes to i think what's made should be free for all to use, personal use. then people will have properly insulated homes and will use less gas in the winter too.

build/mould/carve sculptures and stuff into the fronts and insides of buildings like some of those ancient civilisations did back in the day.

agreed that they need to start finding cheaper and alternative energy sources but we wouldn't get shit for free even though everyone contributes to it. The money involved in making plants to extract it, the extraction process itself and then all the workers involved, equipment etc. All that would cost money and would need to be paid for. It would be an endless supply though if they could do it and surely cheaper than the alternative!

Ol' Dirty Trixˣ

they can sell the building materials they make and keep the gas free. the gas naturally emits anyways, they just gotta cut down on the time it takes to extract. they will need more in the way of machinery than staff.

the worse that could happen is the possibility of a shit plant exploding and there'll be shit everywhere, but at least that's not as bad as a nuclear explosion. if there was a shit explosion, the shit could still be salvaged.

Ol' Dirty Trixˣ

at the same time we will pollute the environment less by not polluting our seas. it's a win win all around. there's everything to gain and nothing to lose.

:lmao: salvaging shit from a shit plant explosion

Your right though, definatly better than a nuclear explosion and less harmful to the enviroment. Not sure about the building materials like but the gas could work

Mud huts, built of mud, clay, branches, stone and other natural materials etc... thats about as much as I know!

lol, they might use animal shit as a type of cement for constructing them but I dunno about human shit!

Ol' Dirty Trixˣ
10-25-2012, 11:59 AM
they make shit bricks. if it can be done with animal shit why not human shit? i think they do make it with human shit. they can extract all the gases to stop the shit from stinking. add whatever they need to the shit to make bricks, roof tiles, wall insulation, paving slabs, pottery, sculpture, etc, etc.

i'm not telling people to smear shit all over their homes, the shit does need to go through some processes.

hashashin
10-25-2012, 12:07 PM
yeah, read about the bricks made from shit! They wouldn't smell after being treated, suppose it could work but they just seem like breeze blocks rather than proper bricks. shit sculptures and pottery could probably sell for loads, bound to be some people who see it as quirky lol

Ol' Dirty Trixˣ
10-25-2012, 12:09 PM
shit is solid, no breeze allowed. if it aint solid they can compress it.

i also don't think it's a good idea to mess with the atmosphere too much cos it will affect the weather. growing more trees and plants is the best, easiest, and natural solution to the problem with CO2 emissions. the money saved on developing machines to counteract the CO2 can be invested in sewage recycling.

Ol' Dirty Trixˣ

farmers make use of animal shit. the governments can make use of human shit.

hashashin
10-25-2012, 01:11 PM
our goverment would probably build on a greenbelt area and cut down loads of trees to build the sewage recycling plant

Ol' Dirty Trixˣ
10-25-2012, 01:17 PM
i'm sure there are better places they can put them. if they cut down any trees then they should replant some elsewhere. trees would counteract the CO2 emissions faster than plants would, imo, because over time, as trees get bigger, its surface area increases. it will also create new habitats for lots of wildlife.

True, it would have to be a good distance away from a populated area though, imagine the uproar a huge shit explosion would cause in a surburban area

Ol' Dirty Trixˣ

don't put them in suburban areas or the city. they should put them near where they would normally pump raw sewage into the sea, so coastal areas or the country side.

'Poo-powered' car seen on the streets of Bristol

The methane makers
Apples power 'eco-friendly' Jag
A "poo-powered" VW Beetle has taken to the streets of Bristol in an attempt to encourage sustainable motoring.

The Bio-Bug runs on processed methane gas generated as part of the raw sewage treatment process.

Wessex Water engineers estimate the yearly waste from 70 average households would generate enough gas to run the car for 10,000 miles (16,100km).

Despite being powered by fuel created from sewage, the car does not smell unpleasant.

"It performs like a normal car - you wouldn't know it was powered by biogas," a company spokesman said.

'Surplus gas'

To use biogas as vehicle fuel without affecting vehicle performance or reliability the gas needs to be treated to remove the carbon dioxide content.

GENeco, part of Wessex Water, imported specialist "cleaning" equipment to treat the raw methane generated at the sewage treatment works in Avonmouth.

The spokesman added: Our site has been producing biogas for many years which we use to generate electricity to power the site and export to the National Grid.

"With the surplus gas we had available we wanted to put it to good use in a sustainable and efficient way.

"We decided to power a vehicle on the gas offering a sustainable alternative to using fossil fuels which we so heavily rely on in the UK."

just found this: http://priuschat.com/threads/sewage-could-replace-petrol-in-cars-hydrogen.115260/



The consortium has told the Nikkei that extracting hydrogen from sewage is cheaper and more environmentally friendly than traditional methods. It claims the process cuts carbon emissions by 75 per cent.
The process involves drying out the sludge to generate methane gas. The methane is then reheated to extract a high concentration of hydrogen gas.
The consortium is aiming to commercialise the process by 2015.
The consortium includes Toyota affiliate Toyota Tsusho Corporation, Mitsui Chemicals, Daiwa Lease and Japan Blue Energy. Toyota is not a member but is backing the research.

2. Production of Hydrogen from Sewage Sludge
The HIT Business Research Group has commenced verification tests using sewage sludge to generate bio-hydrogen at JBEC’s BLUE TowerTM new technology plant located at its development center in Izumo City, Shimane Prefecture.
Past small scale tests have shown that the BLUE TowerTM technology is successful in converting sewage sludge into gas with high hydrogen concentration, thereby confirming the potential of sewage sludge as a raw material of bio-hydrogen.
Through test runs at the verification plant, methodology and production of bio-hydrogen will be substantiated and followed by studies for a commercial scale bio-hydrogen production plant and a model business structure.
