New Yorkers will soon be cooking with their own gas.
The poop of Big Apple residents is being turned into methane at Brooklyn’s Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant — and the gas will now be used to fuel up to 5,000 local homes.
“We have found a gas well in the middle of Brooklyn,” said Donald Chahbazpour, Gas Utility of the Future director at the National Grid power company. “But the feedstock is not fossil fuel — it’s us.”
