Government Invests 10 Billion in University’s Poop-to-Currency Project

Submitted by on March 13, 2017 – 2:30 pmNo Comment

by Joseph Shin (The Korea Bizwire)  “Ttong-bonwi-hwapae” literally translates into “poop standard currency.” And the government is investing 10 billion won ($8.65 million) over the next five years to turn this human waste-to-currency idea into reality in South Korean towns and cities.

A pilot project was initially spearheaded by the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology last May at its Science Walden Pavilion, which is a laboratory with a lavatory (no pun intended) that turns human waste into biofuel, and in return rewards “donors” with a virtual currency called “kkul” (honey in Korean).

Sewage is dehydrated and converted into odorless powder, after which it is processed inside a bioreactor into methane gas and carbon dioxide.
