  • Over two half billion people have no access to say sanitation.

  • We asked brilliant engineers to help to solve this problem.

  • And one of those engineers has actually proposed the solution, where the way is available.

  • Young process returns sewer sludge, just kind the nasty, into clean drinking water, electricity, and ash.

  • This is where the sludge into the machine.

  • It goes up this conveyor belt, displays into these large tubes, we call the dryer, that's where we boil the sludge.

  • And in the boiling process, we separate the water vapor from the soils.

  • The soils are now dry, and we can feed them into the fire.

  • Once we have this very hot fire, we can make high pressure, high temperature steam.

  • And we take that steam, and we send it to the steam machine.

  • And the steam machine drives the generator, that makes electricity that we use for the processor and also access electricity that can be delivered back to the community.

  • The water vapor that's created in the boiling process is run to cleaning system.

  • After we have cleaned, pure water you can possibly imagine.

  • The sanitation system as we know it in the developed world cannot work in developing countries.

  • So what we need in developing countries is a very simple system.

  • The entrepreneur that owns this process would get paid for the input, the sludge.

  • And that same entrepreneur would get paid for the output, electricity, the water, and the ash.

  • I'm very impressed, with the solution we're seeing here, it generates electricity, it generates clean water.

  • It will grow to the every corner of the earth needed because it makes money every day.

  • It's water!
