Toyota has invented cars powered by Human Waste. In Fukuoka, Japan, a wastewater treatment plant converts human waste into Hydrogen to fuel Toyota’s hydrogen fuel cell car – the Mirai. The Fukuoka plant’s current capacity of 300 kg of hydrogen in a day is adequate to run 65 Mirai vehicles.
Using wastewater is one of the most eco-friendly methods to make hydrogen, especially for big cities that produce a lot of sewage. In comparison to electric battery cars, hydrogen vehicles may be more effective in convincing consumers to give up their petroleum or gasoline-run vehicles as they function in similar ways.
Will tomorrow’s cars run on hydrogen drawn from human waste?
