No more sewers

“Imagine a day when mini-bioreactors, located under apartment buildings, are able to convert raw sewerage from flats into valuable methane gas for use in household heating, and treated water recycled back to flush toilets. Funds from my award will develop the first low-waste bioreactor which has the potential to revolutionize the way we deal with effluent,” says Professor David Stuckey while receiving his award from the Royal Society.
