Oh my giddy aunt....

"Patents are pending on Europe's first furnace fired entirely by soiled nappies, which was constructed for the Liebenau Foundation, an operator of rest homes in the south-west corner of Germany". Source

"The 11-meter-high (36-feet-high) plant can consume 8 million diapers annually. By [chief technician Marco] Nauerz' calculation, that means it can continuously eliminate the waste from 12,000 incontinent patients. There is no risk the supply will dry up".

Apparently the furnace is odourless, but I feel quite nauseous.

(If anyone with Teutonic connections were to inform me that the 16th July is the Hunnish April 1st I would not be greatly surprised)

I think you already know that burning BSE carcasses counts as renewable power generation in the UK (and that lottery grants have been awarded to configure boilers so to do . . . )

They are quite good on euphemisms for furnaces at 'rest homes'

I hope the Germans don`t revert to tyoe and chuck the whole body in.
I feel like I could power London with the nappies I change
