company under GENeco, a subsidiary of Wessex Water, a water supply and sewerage utility company in UK understood that Through treating sewage and food which is unfit for human consumption, they will be able to produce enough biomethane to provide a significant supply of gas to the national gas network that’s capable of powering almost 8,500 homes as well as fuelling the Bio-Bus.
