Toto Toilet Company presents poo-powered bikeAugust 30, 2012 by: Mita Mukherjee
Poo – powered motorcycle is ready to hit the market sooner. A Japanese company Toto toilet has unveiled the motorcycle extraordinaire recently at a Fujisawa showroom. A project that was in process since 2009 called as ‘Toilet Bike Neo’ has finally reached its destination and is all set for grabs, but the price and the time it will hit the market for the customers has not been announced yet.
This highly efficient motorcycle running on excrement has a basis of a three wheeler, a 250cc trike and a seat that is a toilet built specially for the motorcycle. But do not misunderstand the excrement to be human excrement or rather the excrement of the rider.
It is actually compressed household waste water and livestock waste that would be required. A Metro UK report says, the bike “runs on biogas fuel (fertilized, purified and compressed livestock waste and household waste water) provided by the Shika-oi Town in Hokkaido and Kobe city.”
