My role model, Bill Gates (I had to say that ) has started rolling out a technology that can convert faeces to drinkable water. Before you go all Eeeww, read on.
For those who are unfamiliar with how the technology works, it is very basic, it takes human waste and recycles it into clean water. The motive behind this technology is to help get clean and drinkable water to countries where they can’t afford to get such in Africa. Currently, the first rollout has begun in Dakar, Senegal.
Omni processor which is the name of the technology will help people find a way to dispose of human waste at the same time create an avenue where they can get some value from it. However, Bill Gates notes that “The machine has to be tested — and unlike a computer program, sanitation machines can’t be tested from a desk in Seattle. The real world introduces lots of variables. For example, you have to find the right personnel to run the machine. You have to work with local and national governments and gauge the public’s reaction.”
I must admit that even though most of you might think the process is “eewish,” I think it is a great initiative. #Respect
QUESTION OF THE DAY : Would you be willing to drink the water?
