Bill Gates goes from Windows to toilets

Font Size:

If Bill ever invites you to his house and offers you something to drink, insist on something in a sealed container. The Daily Mail reports:

A new invention – funded by Bill Gates – aims to turn used toilet water into drinking water.

Manchester University’s Sarah Haigh is an expert in nanotechnology – the science of manipulating atoms in matter – and says, it could make waste water from toilets safe to drink.

The innovation – which has been funded by billionaire Bill Gates – could transform the lives of millions of people in the third world…

The expert, from Manchester University’s school of materials, believes that a scaffold device holding a mixture of bacteria and tiny metal nano-particles will react with the water to extract useful hydrogen, with the remainder filtered again to produce clean water.

So Bill Gates wants to take raw sewage and turn it into something suitable for human consumption. You’d think he would’ve learned his lesson after Vista.
