Creating fuel from sewage? Yes, it is now possible as an alternative to the compressed natural gas.
The pilot project Smart Green Gas is already working in a wastewater treatment plant in Jerez, Spain. This gas made from an inexhaustible source can be used by any car that is able to work with compressed natural gas.
Behind this idea is Seat and Aqualia, a wastewater treatment company, that will have two Seat Leon TGI running on the new fuel.
According to Seat, a wastewater treatment plant can produce over 1.000 m3 of bio-gas per day, which is enough for 300 vehicles to make more than 15.000 km per year.
“With this collaboration project with Aqualia, Seat becomes the first brand in the automotive sector in the country to use bio-methane gathered from wastewater”, explains the vice-president to the Investigation and Development of Seat, Dr. Matthias Rabe.
The Spanish brand believes that this gas can become an alternative to the compressed natural gas.
