Sewer waste could power Olympic transport
The chief executive of bus firm Stagecoach believes fats, oils and grease dumped in the capital's sewers could power 2012 transport.
Mr Souter, a Scot, said his home country had a plentiful supply of chip fat oil and he was working on using this on his buses.
He said: "We're looking at a project with all this stuff that goes down the drains builds up in the pipes and turns to a thick paste like concrete.
"We have a suggestion ... they scoop this stuff out of the sewer and it would make a really good biofuel.
"And if we had a plant in London we could run a large percentage of the Olympic bus fleet, about 3000 buses, on the gunge that comes out of our sewers."
