The resulting cost of electricity is comparable with home solar systems.
Scientists from the University of Amsterdam and Utrecht University want to engage in the production of electricity from used toilet paper.
Cost of received electricity, according to the scientists, is comparable to homemade solar installations. It is noted that the used toilet paper is a great source of carbon. On average, residents of Western Europe produces annually from ten to 14 kilograms of such waste. One Amsterdam produces up to 10 thousand tons, which is enough to provide energy 6 400 houses.
In the recycling process, scientists intend to use gasification and solid oxide fuel cells. The cost of electricity will be 20 cents per kWh, which will allow it to compete with other forms of alternative renewable energy sources.
At the moment, scientists are in search of investors.
