Bio-bus runs on poo - level 2

Bio-bus runs on poo - level 2

27-11-2014 15:00

This news is about a bus which operates in England. The bus runs on gas which comes from human and food waste. You could say that it is a poo-powered bus!

It can travel up to 186 miles (299 km) on just one tank of gas, and there are seats for 40 people. Five people can fill the whole tank with gas in a year.

The bio-bus is environmentally friendly. People can produce the gas infinitely if there are enough people to produce it.

Difficult words: poo (the brown thing you leave in the toilet), environmentally friendly (nice to the planet and the nature), infinitely (limitlessly).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Are you concerned about the environment?
