Japan unveils world's first 'waste-powered' vehicle
A popular lavatory maker in Japan has come up with world's first 'waste-powered' vehicle that can run for 180 miles on a tank filled with animal waste. The company unveiled the motorbike on Wednesday.
Claimed as the world's first waste-powered vehicle, the three-wheeler is installed with lavatory in place of a regular seat and large paper roll at the back.
"The biogas it uses as fuel is not made from human waste. It's made from livestock waste and sewage," the Telegraph quoted Kenji Fujita, TOTO's spokesman, as telling reporters in a Tokyo suburb.
"We hope to raise awareness among customers about our green campaign through development of environmentally-friendly products such as water-saving showerheads and water-saving toilets," Fujita added.
The company, however, did not tell any plans to commercialise the motorcycle.
