LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Science Museum says it is considering a radical way of paying its
hefty energy bills: using visitors' excrement.

The central London museum said it was considering taking the waste from its 14 toilet blocks and
converting it into electricity.
"With free admission it would be a great way for visitors to give something back to the museum
and help keep the overheads down," said the museum's head Jon Tucker. "We have almost 3 million
visitors each year and have huge electricity bills."

The museum said the plan would be to siphon off waste from the toilets, store it and then either
burn it as fuel in a mini-power station or turn it into electricity using a microbial fuel cell.


The power produced from the excrement of 100,000 visitors could produce enough to power 500
light bulbs, while also breaking down harmful organic matter, it said.
