Cooking food with human poop instead of charcoal? Yes, it’s possible

Sanivation, a social enterprise operating in East Africa, has combined Kenya’s biggest human waste issue into an affordable cooking-fuel. Yes, your poop can be treated and turned into a form of charcoal you can cook with!

Anybody whose ever had a barbecue party in their backyard would know just how costly charcoal is. Given the fact that most fuels are non-renewable and scarce, their rising prices shouldn’t be a wonder.

Even now, in Indian villages, gobar gas is the common fuel source and it’s quite cheap, because it’s readily available. Researchers across the world have been looking for alternative sources of fuel, and a startup in Kenya has actually made great strides in this regard.
