BMW’s New Poop-Based Paintjob Might Be A “10-Footer”

We’ve seen some bad paint jobs in our time, but it appears that we’re about to witness a lot more because BMW is collaborating with BASF to create sustainable paints from sewage.

Sure, sewage. The gunk we flush down our drains, which includes unclean water from cleaning up last night’s supper and, depending on how fast your digestive system works, last night’s dinner itself. Of course, we’re talking about poop.

You’ve caught us with our trousers down, if you think you’ve read this news before. I hadn’t aware my colleague Seb had previously covered it back in May, and for a brief time I considered crapping, um ditching this new piece, but it would be a shame to throw all that work away. I mean, BMW is painting cars with crap, and I’m not sure we made a big enough deal out of that alarming fact in our initial rush to get the story. Who knows, Seb could have been looking at his phone at the moment.

Anyway, in case you missed the original piece and want a serious take without the dumb jokes, the deal is that BMW and BASF are working on replacing petroleum-based components in the painting process with raw materials derived from organic waste, which includes bio-waste from sewage treatment plants.

They believe that, in addition to reducing the quantity of fossil fuels required in materials, the new approach will reduce emissions generally emitted during crude oil production and transportation. The new corrosion prevention and paint method reduces CO2 emissions by 40% and will be used at BMW’s Leipzig, Germany, and Rosslyn, South Africa, factories.
