The Sheffield City Council is out on a mission to relieve the environment from the harmful carbon emissions and its partner in this appreciable deed are six poo-powered vans. In an attempt to reduce its carbon footprint and encourage sustainable motoring, the council will put six vans on the streets that run on biogas produced from the raw sewage treatment process.
The low carbon, low emission vehicles will not only help to reduce carbon emissions, but will also prove to be a practical alternative to petrol and diesel ones. The biogas that will power these green cars will come from the sewage treatment done by Kelda Water and its sister company Yorkshire Water. Presently, the council is busy trialling a variety of eco-friendly alternatives for fuel for its fleet of eco-friendly vehicles.
