Mr. Fusion and the Delorean - Closer Than You Think
Remember Back to the Future? When Doc drives in at the end of the movie and fuels up the Delorean using Miller Lite, bananas, etc? Well, an interesting item appeared in Discover Magazine about some emerging technology that could transform common household and industrial wastes, food, and garbage into light crude oil, natural gas, and other useful minerals. Apparently the project has moved beyond the theoretical stage and the company involved in this endeavor, Changing World Technologies, Inc has some facilities already up and running. Making oil and gas from our own garbage is almost too good to be true. Lets hope it isn't.
