Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)’s Gates Drinks Water Made From Human Waste

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) may have made him a billionaire and constant headliner in billionaire lists but Bill Gates is now very busy with his philanthropic ventures and quest to make the world more self-sustaining. One of those ventures has led him to drinking water made from human waste.

In a CNBC report, Rebecca Quick points out that the Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) co-founder has tweeted about drinking water processed from sewer sludge.

“Bill Gates [is] showing the highest level of confidence in a new technology that turns waste – human waste – into drinking water. I am not kidding about this,” Quick said.

In a tweet, the former Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) top executive said: “From your toilet to my glass…I got to taste water made from human waste.”

In the accompanying video to the tweet, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Gates featured the Janicki OmniProcessor, a machine that processer sewer sludge into new products, one of which is clean water.

Gates said that over 2.5 billion people have no access to safe sanitation. He said he and his team asked engineers to tackle this problem and one of the proposed solutions is to turn waste into something valuable.

Microsoft, is MSFT a good stock to buy, Bill Gates, Janicki OmniProcessor, human waste, drinking water

According to Peter Janicki, CEO of Janicki Bioenergy, the Janicki OmniProcessor turns “nasty” sewer sludge into clean drinking water, electricity and ash.

Sludge, he said in the demonstration, gets boiled first which is where the water is separated from the solid waste. The solid waste is then used as fuel for a fire that generates steam that drives a generator. The electricity generated is used for the whole machine and for purifying the water that can then be used for drinking. Any excess electricity can be outputted to the normal electricity grid.

Gates, standing very close to the intake of the Janicki OmniProcessor (read: close to the raw sewer sludge), demonstrated that the water is safe by drinking from a glass filled from the machine. The billionaire said “he’s very impressed” and that the product is “water”.

Ever the entrepreneur, Gates also said that the machine is very viable and will likely interest a lot of businesses because it makes money. An owner of the machine will be paid for processing waste and for selling excess electricity and water.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) shareholders includes Jeffrey Ubben’s ValueAct Capital which owned over 74.23 million shares in the tech giant by the end of September 2014.
