How can humanure be used to create power?

    Humanure – human excrement – contains 6% nitrogen, %4 phosphorus and 2% potassium.   In addition to making great compost (yes, it’s true!), humanure is used to create biogas that is undergoing a test run in a small U.K. town to supply all the power used to heat homes.  Humanure can not only be used as a natural gas substitue, but studies in California and Uganda show that it can be turned into full-fledged electricity.
