yes, you read that right. a purple bacteria can turn human waste into clean hydrogen energy. the new method reduces carbon emissions and turns wastewater treatment plants into green generators. how cool! putting a new spin on ‘zero-waste’!
a significant downside to wastewater treatment plants is their carbon footprint. now, researchers have found a way to reduce carbon emissions from sewage and produce hydrogen energy at the same time. their method uses purple bacteria and electrical currents to capitalize on the organic materials we flush down the toilet every day.
