    Bill Gates' poop water machine gets a test run
    [​IMG]
    Earlier this year, Bill Gates posted a video of himself drinking water that was made from human feces. (It went viral, unsurprisingly.)


    The water was processed by a machine that collects human waste and converts it into safe, reusable byproducts -- water, electricity and ash. This week, Gates said in a blog post that the "Omni Processor" machine is getting its first test run in Dakar, Senegal, with the aim of reducing disease and saving lives in the city.

    Dakar is a West African city of 3.4 million, about a third of whom have no access to the city's sewer system. Instead, they store their waste in pits or septic tanks.

    Many people in Dakar can't afford to hire trucks to safely remove the waste from their homes -- so they remove it by hand. That's a dangerous process, exposing themselves and the groundwater to contamination.

    In an effort to make the sanitation trucks more affordable, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has invested in a company called Janicki. The Seattle-based company built the Omni Processor and recently installed one in Dakar.

    The Omni Processor makes much of the current waste management process obsolete, potentially making sanitation much cheaper for Dakar. And the next version of the Omni Processor will make waste management even cheaper: Garbage will be removed by magnets instead of by hand, and wet waste will not need to be separated from dry waste.

    The machine also saves the city money by powering the rest of the sanitation facility with electricity converted from the waste it processed. Treated water can be drunk or used for irrigation, and ash can be made into bricks.

    Gates said the Omni Processor is succeeding in its test run, and the results have been promising. Gates and Janicki aim to bring more Omni Processors to other cities in need

    Dakar isn't alone. More than 2 billion people around the world -- nearly a third of humanity -- use toilets that aren't connected to a sewer system. Poor sanitation kills 700,000 children every year, according to Gates.

    Why doesn't Howard do something like this with his cash rather than trying to dupe his listeners into building his wife's vanity cat spa.

    This kind of thing happens every day. There is no new water. All water is millions of years old and has been recycled millions of times either naturally or at water processing plants.

    so billyboy adds 1.4million people every two years to the overtaxed planet, then exponential growth once they procreate.
    oh goody, thanks bill. we need more poor people who don't have the resources to survive.. lets relocate them to your hood.

    mother nature kinda sorta knows what its doing for the past 4.5billion years. don't fuck with natural science dipshit.

    ol billyboy will jet off that shithole continent patting himself on the back...jfc

    I suck, we should overpopulate the planet on continents with very limited resources. we're like mr magoo driving along blind as a bat, merrily humming along, never getting into an accident while creating massive havoc in our wake. good ol billyboy, saving humanity, creating one future disaster at a time.

    What makes you think that something similar and/or related to all of that isn't happening/already "underweigh"?

    Pay...much closer attention.

    The dough.
    ...and the daughter(s).
