B.C. funds study on using region's sewage for energy
Times Colonist, Victoria, BC; Monday, September 10, 2007

"The B.C. government has launched a unique study to see whether a flush
of your toilet could one day produce useable fuel, power and clean water.

The $100,000 project is believed to be one of the most comprehensive
government reports on the benefits of recovering resources -- such as
heat, biogas, electricity and water -- from human waste during the
sewage treatment process.

"In order to deal with climate-change issues, and possible new
technologies, we should look at possibilities for things such as water
reuse, energy and heat recovery," said Ida Chong, minister of community
services, which has commissioned the study."
