It may look like a traditional Yorkshire pub but it’s flush with new technology.
The Number Two Tavern in Leeds, England, is a pop-up demonstration of a cutting-edge energy production using power created by anaerobic digestion, according to Yorkshire Water. The process converts sewage into biogas that can generate heat and electricity.
Visitors may pooh-pooh the limited menu, offering nothing but water. But visitors can quench their thirst while posing for photos with a prop toilet.
The world’s first poo-powered pub is open! The Number Two Tavern is the first ever public space to be powered by energy created by anaerobic digestion, a process that converts sewage waste into energy!
