A British company has come up with a way to make farming more sustainable – what a poo-tiful thing!
Bennamann, a clean energy company based in Britain, has created a tractor that can be powered … by poop.
Farming, particularly that which involves cows, can have a huge impact on the environment.
Cows produce methane, a greenhouse gas, though, well, farting, and traditional tractors produce carbon – yet another harmful gas. Sounds like our planet needs a little … re-hoof-ination!
How does this tractor work again? Poop?
Bennamann has come up with an innovative way to use up all that harmful methane gas, by liquifying it and using it to power tractors.
Not only does this cut out the harmful carbon, it also comes up with a great way to use the methane that has already been produced.
Maybe this idea came out of the poo, but it sure is a good one!
