Uganda found an extremely sustainable resource for alternative energy... human feces. If you think that's gross, you obviously don't appreciate how good you have it. In developing nations like Uganda where reliable energy is scarce, people are forced to get innovative.

By mixing algae with items like banana peel, chicken dung and human feces, they're able to create a Biofuel which can be used for things like lighting and cooking.

Implications - Although at first this method may sound less than appealing, the result is actually amazing both for the planet and for developing nations. This knowledge may also be helpful for the next time you find yourself stranded in the middle of nowhere.
