Bill Gates Drinks Water Made From Poop

No, it’s not disgusting. It’s science. After watching this experiment, you’ll think twice before questioning Bill Gates’ commitment to science and technology.


The billionaire activist and Microsoft co-founder demonstrated the latest project from the philanthropic Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation himself. It is a machine called the “Janicki Omniprocessor” that transforms human waste into clean water and electricity.

Gates believes this procedure could help bring clean water to the 700 million people (in 43 countries all over the world) who suffer today from water scarcity.

The machine, built by Seattle-based engineering firm Janicki Bioenergy, takes in human waste and boils it. While the water vapors are captured, filtered and dispensed as 100% clean drinking water, the solid matter is burned to power a steam engine that generates electricity.

In a nutshell, if this works, soon our toilet waste will find its way back to us in a glass or a mineral water bottle.

Sounds disgustingly cool, doesn’t it?

Well, Bill Gates liked it and he is all set to fund the project.

"The processor wouldn’t just keep human waste out of the drinking water; it would turn waste into a commodity with real value in the marketplace," Gates wrote on his official blog. "It’s the ultimate example of that old expression: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure."
