Gates Foundation Funds Machine That Can Transform Human Waste Into Drinking Water

“…In the video, released [last] week, [Gates] stands in front of the Janicki Omniprocessor, a giant new machine that can turn human waste into clean drinking water in minutes. … The Omniprocessor is one of the latest projects funded by the Gates Foundation (which also supports NPR), and the philanthropist wants the rest of the world to back it up as well. The machine’s purpose is to help the 783 million people living without clean water and the nearly 2.5 billion who don’t have adequate sanitation…” (Poon, 1/10).
