How is your home heated? What if you found out that the heating was powered by poo?
In the UK this is exactly what is happening.
Experts at the sewage plant have discovered an innovative way to treat waste and turn it into a useful energy.
To do this, the sewage plant uses big “digesters” that actually work a bit like a cow’s stomach to break down the waste.
The waste is then heated and certain chemicals are added to make a gas called methane, which can then be used to power homes.
It is hoped that if this new style of powering heating is successful, that more sewage plants across the UK will follow suit.
