Hi Mary & Zorro,

Yes, in Dubai there is no sewage system.

Poop trucks of Dubai -

In Dubai there is no sewage system.

Instead they have trucks to pick up the waste. Each of these trucks hold 10,000 gallons...

Amazingly, Dubai doesn't have a sewage infrastructure to support its skyscrapers, including the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Drivers said they'd been queuing for three days!

Unsurprising then, that "many dump their loads into storm drains that lead directly to the open sea."
Tourists are warned of the risk of contracting serious illnesses like typhoid and hepatitis if swimming on Dubai beaches. Wikipedia on sanitation in Dubai.

Had they been smarter...Guess what could have been done?

Energy: From Poop To Power - -

That's the kind of alchemy Environmental Power performs.

Based in New Hampshire, the 24-year-old firm generated "$56 million in revenue last year", partly by turning poop into power.

Transforming biological waste into fuels for the future is a nascent industry that has yet to be proven on a large scale.

But so far, Environmental Power has built three small-scale digesters on Wisconsin farms, each of which provides electricity for 600 homes using the manure from about 1,000 cows.

Each project is "cash-flow positive", according to CEO Kamlesh Tejwani, though the company as a whole has yet to turn a profit.

The firm is constructing eight more digesters, and 21 more are in the preconstruction stages. Most of its projects will be on larger farms with at least 5,000 cows...
