Eine Kleine Nachtmuzik, m√∂glicherweise?

A sewage plant near Berlin is playing Mozart to its biomass-eating microbes, hoping the sweet sounds will make them work harder. The Austrian composer may save the facility as much as 1,000 euros a month.

A bit of Mozart, it seems, is useful for all kinds of things. There’s “Mozart for the Morning Commute,” “Mozart for Your Mind,” — and now Mozart for your manure. One German sewage plant is using the Austrian composer’s music to motivate microbes in their treatment facility, in the hopes of driving down energy costs.
