Poo-turned-power project gets a bit messy

Matthew Mazzotta, a 33-year-old Cambridge, MA artist, is working on a project to convert dog waste into usable energy. The amount of usable energy generated by the project is modest, but that’s not the point. Matthew hopes to nudge people into thinking about their energy consumption, where it comes from, and the potential of what’s wasted. But execution, as Adam Ragusea reports for WBUR’s Radio Boston, “has proven more difficult — and more messy — than Matthew could have possibly imagined.” Read the rest of the article here.

    May be the project is new, but this idea appears for long time. Actually I think there was a movie related to this. Generally every pet waste can be used for energy.

    This post is a load of S*#£ LOL, seriously though it’s a good idea anyhow. I know some farmers use cow waste to power their farms.

    I think the idea is of great importance and we should instead of making fun help him out to make his idea workable. So that in the end we all could get benefit out of it.
