Bill Gates posted a video on his blog to explain how equipment works that extracts water from human excrement and also generates its own electricity.
In the world there are more than two billion people who do not have access to adequate health services. Human waste pollutes water that is not treated. The '' Omniprocessor '' aims to solve this problem.
The engineering firm Janicki Bioenergy developed the technology that consists of heating the waste to high temperatures to later extract the water vapor. The Omniprocessor is also capable of producing the electricity required by the process, and a surplus that can be used for other uses.
To show his trust in the Omniprocessor, Gates drinks a glass of fresh water, which moments before was excrement.
Here is the video:
