Rather than consuming lots of energy for purifying sewage, this low-energy bioreactor can capture over 90% of carbon from sewage to produce biogas as renewable energy. In addition, this bioreactor only occupies 30% of carbon footprint as compared with conventional sewage treatment system, thus saving plenty of land resources from sewage treatment works.
Over one billion cubic metres of sewage is generated around the world daily, consuming a huge amount of energy, equivalent to approximately 260 million kWh, for sewage treatment. This also incurs high carbon emisison.
