(London, England)  A British utility company wants to turn the fat used to cook fish and chips into power.

All that fat gets flushed down the sewer causing the London system to back up thousands of times every year.

10-thousand restaurants will take part in the program.

Fat traps will collect oil and grease and that will be used to fuel a power station.

The fat collected would be able to fuel 40-thousand homes and a sewer treatment center.

The plant will open in 2015.
