Bill Gates Drinks Water Made From Human Feces

(via) The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Janicki Bioenergy have developed a machine – the Janicki Omniprocessor – that can turn up to 92.3 cubic meters of human waste into up to 86,000 litres of clean drinking water per day while also producing saleable electricity and ash.

Because we heat the sludge until it boils, water exits the dryer as steam. At this temperature, pathogens cannot survive. While the water is in the vapor phase, it is filtered to remove particles. We then take this bio-safe steam and condense it to water before putting it through water treatment. The machine’s water treatment adjusts the pH, and uses multiple filters to ensure safe, clear, great tasting water. The water is indistinguishable from bottled water.
